To commemorate 10 years of equipping young people with digital skills, we’re giving you the opportunity to upskill yourself and stand in line to WIN a Digify Africa hamper.
Digify Africa found its roots in 2011 as Live Mag, a nationwide youth‐run media channel that helped springboard young people into full‐time paid employment. The publication trained over 500 young adults to produce content, and then transform into Digify Africa, a training centre which would lead to over 100,000 young people in South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria learning digital skills.
The Digify Africa umbrella of courses would kick off with DigifyPRO, an immersive 10-week bootcamp supported by Facebook which trains unemployed youth to become competent digital marketing professionals. Realising that high school learners needed online safety skills, Digify Africa would launch Ilizwe Lam next. The program, which means “My Digital World”, would cater for high school learners who needed internet safety skills. Finally, digital skills training would be developed to cater for entrepreneurs in the form of Boost with Facebook, helping small business owners learn online tools to grow their enterprises.
Over the years, the training sessions developed from classrooms and physical locations to encompass webinars, live online training sessions, and the innovation of learning on WhatsApp.
