I watched with pride as HP’s MD of Central Africa and Nigeria, Ify Afe, took to the stage at the 2018 Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 to announce our pledge to empower another 100,000 learners across Africa in the next three years. This follows our commitment at last year’s Festival to invest more than $20 million in improving education for over 100 million people by 2025.
