Tech Now Global is a non-profit organization that has chosen to take the root of a major problem in Africa and say “NO”. Tech Now Global is an organization that advocates against marginalization in rural communities. Nigeria for example; youth and teenagers in rural communities can’t compete with their peers because they are not digitally literate. The educational system as refuse to inculcate digital literacy in the curriculum. Most youths and teenagers in rural community do not have the necessary skills to move along with the world that is going digital. That why our major objective at Tech Now Global, is to go against marginalization by giving basic skills and 21st century skills to youths and teenagers for them to be able to compete with their peers’ home and abroad in regardless of their background or environmental factor.
