Brief i-Boot Camp Overview:

Today, the internet has not only become a necessity, but has become a window of opportunity for innovation, progress, and change. Currently, Africa has 167 million internet users, predominately youth, who are using the internet as a tool for growth, leading to a better future. As the number of internet users continues to grow astronomically, going digital will bring about benefits for youth, in particular, more access to education, health care, public services and more opportunities to start effective enterprises. At this year’s YALDA i-Boot Camp, youth will be able to propose innovative strategies beyond conventional approaches that take into consideration rapid digitisation for implementing their ideas.  They will leave with the tools and mindset that will enable them to build viable and sustainable enterprises across African borders thereby enhancing rapid digitization from the bottom-up and interconnectivity in Africa, ultimately contributing to the prosperity of our African continent!
