Alphabet To Educate One Million Students In Africa

Alphabet Hope To Expand The Programme Across Africa

Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has announced plans to educate another 1 million students in Africa, after it just finished teaching its first 1 million. The students would be part of the company’s Digital Skills programme, which is currently based in Lagos, Nairobi and Johannesburg. People can register for the programme for free, and have a choice of 89 different courses. Bunmi Banjo, from Google in sub-Saharan Africa, said that the main thing that was stopping the population from moving forward online was “a lack of understanding [of] how to use digital tools”, adding that Alphabet was aiming to “[provide] training to young people and business owners”. In order to train another 1 million pupils, the programme will be expanded to more locations across the continent, and will be made available in more languages, such as Swahili and Hausa.
