Africa.Connected

The world as we know it has changed with the COVID-19 pandemic having profoundly impacted our lives, our countries, and the digital landscape.

As a business we have responded to this crisis to keep citizens and businesses connected - but nearly a billion people in Africa are still being left behind. Remedying this, is the seminal challenge of our time.

The time has come to harnesses the power and potential of technology to build stronger, digital, connected, inclusive and green societies. There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to come together to address the unique challenges we collectively face. 

It’s for this reason that Vodacom, Vodafone and Safaricom are launching the Africa.Connected campaign across eight markets with the goal of accelerating economic recovery by driving digital inclusion, making devices more affordable, empowering small businesses and improving digital literacy. 

But we know that this will not happen overnight. It is a long-term commitment, only possible through sustained, robust, and authentic collaboration that ensures the opportunities and promise of a better digital future is accessible to all. Join us as we work together to build a more resilient future for Africa. A future that ensures no one is left behind.
