Why we invest

Across Africa, more than 7 million young people enter the labor market each year, but the formal sector – the supply of jobs – is small, and most people have to figure out a way to make a living on their own. Education systems do little to prepare them for that reality. In Uganda and Rwanda, Educate! trains secondary school students in leadership, entrepreneurship and workforce readiness. Students learn by doing: they start real businesses under the mentorship of successful local business people. Educate!’s goal is to make their training model part of national education systems, ensuring that vast numbers of kids come out of school with the skills they need to thrive.
