Free Digital platform to raise awareness about the potential of digital technologies in Nigeria
ADE Digital Media, a marketing agency from Nigeria, launched an initiative to empower youth through digital skills by raising awareness about the potential of digital solutions to improve work opportunities in Africa. The program will consist in providing a platform for African citizens to experiment and create innovative solutions that can eventually become available for the market.
According to the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of the company, Mr. Michael Ebia, Free Digital platform will educate both supply and demand stakeholders about the opportunities that digital technologies offer for improving human development outcomes in terms of education, healthcare, e-government, commerce and employment. The project is based on the premise that Africa’s fast progress in digital technology adoption should take place next to substantial efforts to improve digital skills.
