iLike Hub is a tech space in Voi town, Kenya which provides a conducive co-working space to the young rural innovators to come up with tech and business solutions. iLike Hub also empowers and mentor rural ladies of age 15-30 year into tech by providing weekly trainings on both tech and business topics.
While technology is the foundation of innovation, technology alone is not enough. For technology to fulfill its true potential, citizens, and more importantly the youth, need to be empowered and engaged through technology.
The challenge of getting the youth online is, however, still dependent on developing infrastructure on a nation-wide scale, improving coverage in remote and under-served areas, and improving international capacity at a content level.
Beyond connectivity and access to the internet, we need to think about modernising and transforming the education and training systems we have on the continent.
