Technologies like computer software, cellular phones and the internet, among others, can play a vital role in fulfilling the objectives of the ‘digital continent’. These technologies are meant for good use and thus should promote a culture of respect, dialogue and friendship.

The ‘digital continent’ connotes a society that has totally embraced the convenience technologies have to offer. I further refer to a digital world where technologies have played a major role in development.
