Entrepreneurship -Education and Skills Training

We believe education is at least part of the solution to any problem. And our education and skills training initiative is aimed at delivering job pathways that enable economic security and mobility, bridge mismatch between the skills of young people entering the workforce and the needs of employers. This provides them with pathways to improved livelihoods. By bolstering economic opportunity and creating sustainable livelihoods we are working to address underlying economic system failures, ensuring youth and women are better positioned to meet their future needs and will not have to rely on philanthropy.

Entrepreneurship is critical for innovation, job creation and inclusion.Entrepreneurship is at the heart of national and local economic growth. By innovating and seizing opportunities, entrepreneurs drive national and local economic change and competitiveness.

We understand that due to skills mismatch and lack of opportunities, unemployed people may be forced to accept jobs that are well below the skill, benefits, and pay levels they should be eligible for, or could be stranded from the labor market altogether. Therefore, increasing access to jobs with living wages is one of the keys to closing the poverty gap in society ,our jobs skills-building initiative that equips youths and women with the skills they need to succeed acts as a vital driver of economic inclusion and mobility.
