Background
share close

 Ingressive for Good (I4G) is a nonprofit dedicated to empowering African youth with micro-scholarships, technical training, and talent placement. 

Their mission is to create and increase the earning power of African youth through tech training and resources.

“We believe it is our responsibility to empower, inspire, educate, and connect the next generation of African tech talents in need of opportunities, through education and the power of work. More specifically, our core programs include – micro-scholarships, technical training, talent placement, and community: I4G circles, where we provide resources to empower them” said Blessing Abeng, Director of  Communications.

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/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.

Interested participants can register on the company website to be part of the I4G network and also access opportunities like the micro-scholarship, technical training and access growth resources 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 partial 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.

“We are ecosystem architects, and this is the next phase of building the pipeline for Africa to the world,” says Maya Horgan-Famodu, Co-Founder and Board Member. 

These are tough times. Help make them easier for someone out there by sharing this opportunity with them.
