CLOSING THE SKILLS GAP

CLOSINg THE SKILLS GAP

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.
