Nelson Mandela Foundation

Africa Connected Invitation

Digital technologies and connectivity hold the key to unlocking the true potential of Africa’s young people.

By opening up new opportunities for African youth to learn and for teachers to connect with students in the most remote and rural communities, these resources play an integral role in improving African education systems.

This is dependent on the right support mechanisms and policies being put in place.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation in partnership with Vodacom invite you for a panel discussion on how digital technologies and connectivity, combined with the necessary regulatory frameworks and support from governments and industry stakeholders, can be leveraged to mitigate barriers to education across the continent.

Date: 28 June 2023
Time: 10H00 for 10H30am
