The Most Demographically Dynamic Region in the World.
Africans will make up a quarter of the world’s population by 2050 and a workforce of 1 billion. 74% of population growth worldwide of 18-23-year-olds will be in 10 countries by 2035: Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Niger, Nigeria, (Pakistan), Tanzania and Uganda.
The digital transformation of education will drive exponential gains in the access, affordability, quality, and relevance of learning in Africa.
Skills-focused and competency-based learning — combined with the emergence of faster, cheaper, more relevant pathways to employment — affords unprecedented opportunity to connect learning to jobs.
As the global distributed workforce becomes a reality, new models of education and learning in Africa can develop a talent pipeline for the world.
This is a generational opportunity to leapfrog.
