It estimates that by 2016, the initiative will help place tens of millions of smart devices in the hands of African youth, bring 1 million African small and medium-sized businesses online, upskill 100,000 members of the continent’s existing workforce, and help an additional 100,000 graduates develop employable skills. It also says it hopes to help 75 percent be placed in jobs.”
