I chose these articles because they reflect sad realities in Africa. We have the youngest population, they are the future of the world but they also have limited and controlled access to the internet, they are less informed, less connected and have less chances to innovate. In most African countries computer penetration is low and people are using mobile devices for almost every digital transaction. They are not aware of tracking or do not know about tools to keep them safe. I hope these articles will have a huge positive impact on African internet users.
