Ingressive for Good to Empower African Youths in Tech through Microscholarships, Tech Training, and Talent Placement

Ingressive for Good Empower African Youths in Tech through Microscholarships, Tech Training, and Talent Placement

Ingressive for good, Wednesday, July 1, 2020– Africa has the largest youth population, which creates a large growth opportunity. This opportunity is stifled by poverty and unemployment. COVID19, hard economic times. Job losses, foreclosures, and fear for the future put tremendous stress on lots 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. This is why Ingressive For Good exists.

This year Ingressive launched a not for profit arm, Ingressive For Good (I4G) to address the glaring inequities that exist within African tech ecosystems
“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.” said Blessing Abeng, Director of Communications
The recent COVID-19 pandemic further increases the need for innovation that I4G inherently breeds.

The initiative will help African Tech talents in need seek for assistance in the form of:
1. Micro-scholarships
2. Tech Training
3. Talent Placement
We will also provide resources to empower Tech Talents in general.

“The 3 core goals of Ingressive For Good are to create 5,000 jobs through partnerships and training, 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 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.
