Ingressive launches a non-profit arm, Ingressive for Good, to empower African youths with micro-scholarships, technical training, and talent placement.
Wednesday, July 1, 2020 – Ingressive has launched its non-profit arm, after the advisory company and venture fund:
Ingressive For Good (I4G) is a not-for-profit organization that addresses the glaring inequities that exist within African tech ecosystems by increasing the earning power of African youth through tech training and resources.
Africa has the largest youth population, which creates a growth opportunity. This opportunity is stifled by poverty and unemployment, with the current COVID19 crisis expected to further drive unemployment, foreclosures, and an economic recession, thereby placing tremendous stress on millions of African youth.
The emerging digital and 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.
The initiative, as part of the company’s responsibility to empower, inspire, and connect the next generation of tech talents in need of opportunities, will help the participants with micro-scholarships, technical training, talent placement, and also provide other resources to empower them.
Interested participants can register on the company website to be part of the I4G network and also access more opportunities on www.ingressive.org
“The 3 core goals of Ingressive For Good are to create 5,000 jobs through partnerships, connect 1,000,000 African youth to technical skills training and award scholarships to qualified individuals studying computer science courses, in line with our overarching mission to leverage need-based resources, learning, and the power of work to empower African youths in tech,” said Sean Burrowes, COO and Co-Founder of Ingressive for Good.
These are tough times. Help make them easier for someone out there by sharing this opportunity with them.
