With high levels of unemployment and vulnerable employment on the rise, the world of work in Africa is still facing tremendous challenges in terms of job creation and sustainability.
In line with its resolve to help lower the unemployment rate in Africa, Ingressive for Good (I4G), a nonprofit organisation, has announced plans to empower African youth with micro-scholarships, technical training, and talent placement.
The goal is to create and increase the earning power of African youth through tech training and resources.
Record shows that Africa has the largest youth population, which creates a large growth opportunity. This opportunity is, however, stifled by poverty and unemployment. With COVID-19 pandemic, hard economic times, job losses, foreclosures, and fear for the future put tremendous stress on lots of African youth.
The emerging digital/tech ecosystem is particularly crucial as a multiplier of growth because access to technology enhances consumer information, networking, job-creating resources, and even financial inclusion.
Interested participants can register on the organisation’s to be part of the I4G network and also access opportunities like the micro-scholarship, technical training and access growth resources on www.ingressive.org.
