Approximately one billion youth live in the world today. This means that approximately one person in five is between the age of 15 and 24 years, or 18% of the world’s populations are “youth”, and children (5-14 years) comprise of 19.8%.
By 2025, the number of youth living in developing countries will grow to 89.5%. Including Tanzania. Therefore, it is necessary to take youth issues into considerations in the development agenda and policies of each country also on how to fight against poverty
Young people are best promoters of ICTs and are key contributors to building an inclusive Information Society. Therefore, this should be taken into account in all actions and projects targeting the use and access of ICTs, not only as a way to open up ICTs opportunities for children and young people but also as a way to accelerate bridging the Digital Divide and to contribute to the development of the communities in Tanzania.
