In our first ten years, we graduated 100,000 Educate! Scholars from our flagship Educate! Experience program in Uganda. With the growth you’ve made possible, it is only going to take us three years to graduate the next 100,000. This progress is something to celebrate, and it’s all thanks to the generous partners and supporters who have shared our belief in the power and potential of African youth from the start.
As proud as we are of the impact we’ve created in our first decade, the reality is still this:
• By the end of the century, 50% of the world's children will live in Africa and millions of African youth will pass through secondary schools
• In 17 years, Africa will have the largest workforce in the world
• By 2045, the continent's youth population is expected to more than double
Your support at this pivotal moment will propel us forward into the next decade – we can’t do it without you.
Your investment will:
give youth the skills to attain further education
empower youth to start businesses and get jobs
improve gender equity
With ten years’ experience operating our flagship program in schools, we’ve tested, refined, and continually strengthened our model to ensure the maximum impact on youth – impact that is both cost-effective and long-term sustainable. We’ve developed our capacity to provide technical advisory services and support to national education systems, actively working with the governments of three countries to facilitate practical, skills-based secondary education that prepares youth to succeed in today’s economy.
