Digital skills are needed in all fields, beyond the technology niche. There is a need to develop 21st century skills in the next generation so that they can function in a digital economy. One of our partners of the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth, Eidos Global, has implemented digital-skill programmes in Latin America.

Eidos Global is now planning to expand this programme in Africa and looking for new partners to collaborate together in both Latin America and Africa.

  • The goal is to provide the tools so that 2 million people of the working age population in Latin America can strengthen their professional digital skills and for people to be prepared to face the changes of the future of work.
