OneAfrica.Online is a The Fact Foundry initiative supported by Google, and aims to make a difference in the lives of individuals by providing them with skills to enter the digital world. With high numbers of unemployed youth, The Fact Foundry realised the opportunity for the training to help alleviate this social problem by fostering new entrepreneurs and work opportunities and thereby truly offering economic transformation.

Google announced in June 2017 that they aim to equip 10 million young Africans with skills to help them build an online presence, create content, understand web design, user experience, social media and app development, in the next 5 years. In order to reach this target and create meaningful impact they needed partners across Africa. Google wants to help close the digital gap in Africa, improve employability and encourage entrepreneurship among young people through their Digital Skills for Africa program.

Training is provided FREE of charge and every member who attends will receive a digital skills certificate – CLICK HERE to view the FREE events in your area and register today.

I was a #DigitalSkills4Africa trainer initially and decided to put what I was teaching into practice. I started a digital media agency, where I focus on using social media and other digital tools to drive sales, marketing and exposure for my clients. The business has grown from zero revenue to a very successful business with 8 clients and growing rapidly.

My husband and I have a small juice business we would like to grow. We do however have full-time jobs and can only attend to the business when we have time. Since attending the #DigitalSkills4Africa training we have opened a Facebook page and hope to grow our community and interest in our product through social media.
