According to Marc Lubner, CEO for Afrika Tikkun,
“The ICT Academy is vital if youth are to be
employable in the fourth industrial revolution.
Navigating the net and being able to utilise
information technology is as critical as maths
and science in today’s world and Afrika Tikkun
is committed to providing disadvantaged youth
with these employable skills. It is all part of our
holistic development programme.”
