There is a substantial skills gap between what students are taught and what employers require in East Africa. Among the soft and hard skills about 40% of Tanzanian employers assessed English and IT knowledge as being inadequate. This skills gap needs to be bridged in order to maintain economic growth, reduce unemployment and eradicate poverty.
Our Academy Program consists of activities addressing these challenges. Together with selected partners, we connect talented students with employers through trainings and networking events, internship programs and offering recruitment services.

OUR ACADEMY PROGRAM
OUR ACADEMY PROGRAM
IT BOOT CAMP
The IT Boot Camp provides our students with a one week intensive training in basic computer skills. The aim is to equip female students with practical knowledge needed to take power over their future, there income and their lives.
Our students engage in interactive workshops and training in CV enwriting interview skills, entrepreneurship, leadership, ethics and corruption prevention.
We arrange company visits to give students insights into the labour market and to establish a valuable network with companies within their field of study.
CREATING A PATH TO RECRUITMENT
We help students find opportunities for internships, trainee programs and jobs and companies find talent. This boosts both young professionals and companies, and in turn contributes to future growth and development in East Africa.
"We need the whole of the population towards development. And we can't forget the women."
