By 2040, indications show that Africa will have the largest workforce in the world. We are building digital infrastructure to support the workforce. There is an expected rise in informal education channels (self-taught/guided/paced skills), and AfriBlocks aims to be at the forefront. We are excited to announce the launch of a new community-driven AfriBlocks platform.
Building the technology infrastructure for future work in Africa is a top priority. This infrastructure will provide an end-to-end solution for anyone worldwide to connect and seamlessly work with African talent. It is also an essential part of our mission to provide talent to the world while employing as many as one million freelancers by 2025.
