Africa Digital Leaders (ADL) is a hybrid fellowship programme targeting young leaders between the ages 8-16year old to build their skills and capacity to interact with technology responsibly and be able to minimize risks and maximize opportunities that may come along with their engagements online.

Coupled with the fact that children and young people are left out of the discussion regarding internet governance,at COA we believe the earlier young people know and understand their way around technology the better the future could be shaped for Africa.
