ICDL Africa Digital Challenge 2024  

The ICDL Africa Digital Challenge is an annual competition for primary, secondary, higher education, and tertiary students in Africa who want to showcase their digital skills. It aims to provide practical training in digital skills needed for various professional fields in the rapidly changing digital economy.
