PIN urges Africa on digital inclusion of marginalised communities

In commemoration of the International Day of Education, Paradigm Initiative, a social advocacy group, has called on African governments for digital inclusion of marginalised communities.

PIN made the call in a statement by its spokesperson, Valery Njiaba.

The group further urged the governments to enhance access to education by removing technological barriers and investing in digital infrastructure.

It said, “PIN reminds all African states that education is a fundamental right that enables the enjoyment of other rights such as human dignity, health, and labour. As such, ensuring access to education for all is most pertinent.

“During this time, PIN calls for the African states to adhere to Principle 37 of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights’ Declaration of Principles on Freedom of Expression and Access to Information in Africa by adopting laws, policies, and other measures to promote affordable access to the internet for children that equip them with digital literacy skills for online education and safety.”

An annual celebration, the International Day of Education for this year was themed, ‘Recover and Revitalize Education for the COVID-19 Generation.’
