One of the problem the youth have little information or none about important matters despite the availability and diversity of all these technological tools.

Technology is not by chance but a tool to enhance and make quick informed decisions matters. World  Merit is a platform that enables even distribution of opportunities globally , have the passion on what you  do and make proper use of technology to better your careers  and have solutions for today and the future,” said Chris Arnorld CEO- of World Merit.

“I am an open minded person; take up the initiative to learn as much as you can through the internet which is now a major source of information to most solutions.

“Innovation hubs are a driver and am optimistic some are in place and many are yet to start up all over the country.  Let’s be pro-active with information and harness from opportunities available since access to information is cutting edge in this era,” Nataliey Bitature added.
