Joomla! : A Breakthrough Towards Reducing Unemployment in Africa

topic description

The level of unemployment in the world has skyrocketed especially in Africa. Many people especially youths are embarking on dangerous trips to cross over to Europe for a greener pasture due to unemployment and other factors. However, the notion always is that government must provide them with jobs, but many seem to ignore the reality that government cannot provide jobs for all. This is why the youths and young entrepreneurs need to get themselves empowered with necessary skills to help them become self reliant. Joomla Skills for example, will be a game changer for many youths in Africa as it will open the doors of opportunities especially in the online environment.
