A world with a productive human capital driving transformational socio-economic development globally.
Achieving data-driven innovative education, employability, and entrepreneurship interventions and advocacy that drive sustainable growth and development.
We collect data and assess beneficiaries to determine needs to contextualize interventions. We research trends in sectors to inform beneficiaries and stakeholders. We analyze data from interventions for advocacy, awareness and continuous learning & development.
We design and deliver data-driven, holistic interventions to meet the needs in line with our mandate. Our interventions include programs, initiatives and challenges delivered directly or indirectly through individuals, public, private and non-profit partners.
We utilize data and intervention outcomes to raise awareness, mobilize partnerships, inform policies, drive the culture and enabling environment for sustainable development impact.
We are responsible and provide the best quality in our work, while ensuring belief in social responsibility, openness, transparency and accountability to one and other, and all stakeholders, beneficiaries and partners. We “walk the talk” and our word is our bond.
We value learning and feedback, and believe in the importance of sharing knowledge, skills and experiences to scale impact. We partner with individuals and institutions that share our values, mission and vision.
We seek to deliver long-term sustainable, holistic and data-driven interventions. We believe in advocacy based on proofs of concept and impact as the avenue for entrenching lasting change. At the heart of our work is our focus on building human capital to drive socio-economic change in their communities.
