Digital technology is rapidly evolving and increasingly indispensable in our lives. This is true not only for adults, but also for children and adolescents. For young people, digital technology provides tools to engage in entrepreneurship, network with peers, and access critical health, career and financial information. For women and girls, digital adoption and use offers an opportunity to overcome hurdles they may face in the physical world. It can offer skills needed to excel in education and work, as well as increased access to the digital jobs of the future.
