It was a social impact project at its core, with the mission to reach under-resourced youth with critical messaging and to create jobs through its production process.

In 2016, Digify Africa began operating in Kenya and Nigeria, and went through an intense period of growth, delivering a high-volume program of digital skills with Google, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the British Council.
