"Thanks again u were of great help I couldn't do it without your advice; I learned from the best."

Saiz Akoi Monrovia, Liberia

The skills and knowledge I gained helped me to find employment with an international non-profit organization. I was also able to serve as the Technical Advisor for TVET, Liberia. The training served as a stepping stone for me to complete my Bachelors in Business Administration and currently furthering my studies in a Masters program.

Our Approach

  • Our business solution is to provide affordable, results-focused, mobile learning courses and face-face training specifically designed for African youth to improve their suitability and capacity for employment and entrepreneurship. This blended learning gives youth an opportunity to gain relevant skills, knowledge, and competencies demanded by the job market.

  • Youth not in Employment, Education or Training often just need to “get their foot in the door” so that they can prove their value as an employee. Our mobile courses give youth the personal and professional development skills needed for gainful employment and access to the virtual workforce.

  • Access to affordable, quality, course content on their mobile devices gives young people the opportunity to take control of their personal lives and career paths.

    Experience has taught us that gaining knowledge and skills is not enough to sustain change, therefore participants are encouraged and empowered to live their purpose and fulfill their dreams through our online support.
