Technology: Africa's Lifeline

by

Technology Initiative Africa

Africa as a continent is blighted by numerous political and socio-economic challenges. The 1 billion strong continent is faced with perennial poverty which is a direct result of:
(i) underutilisation of resources due to lack of adequate technology;
(ii) unequal distribution of resources as the poverty gap keeps widening;
and (iii) poor resource management and lack of planning.

In answer to underutilisation of resources, Africa must adopt and implement a radical pro-technology policy.
Our natural resources are extracted, marketed, processed by foreigners because we have no established technopreneurial base.
They know more on how to extract and utilise our ores than us. They know more of the amount of wealth we are sitting on.

Its time Africa adopts a technopreneurial strategy in fighting poverty.
