Transforming the Youth and shaping the minds of our future leaders.
To promote economic growth among the youth through job creation while advocating for use of ICT and innovation as a key driver to sustain socio-economic development.
Article 55 of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 provides that the State shall take measures, including affirmative action programmes to ensure that the youth have opportunities to associate be represented and participate in political, social, economic and other spheres of life, access employment and are protected from harmful cultural practices and exploitation.
Digital Africa Foundation recognizes that one of the main issues affecting the youth is unemployment and underemployment. The current education system only prepares the youth to be job seekers but fails to prepare them to be job creators. 87% of the jobs that are currently available are informal jobs which the youth are reluctant to take. Those who decide to be entrepreneurs lack mentorship opportunities and many other resources which result in a lack of sustainable business practices.
Digital Africa Foundation is determined to register youths whose interests lie in ICT and entrepreneurship and train, mentor and link them to organizations that will provide long term or short term employment. By doing so, the employer will receive a group of highly motivated and passionate employees who are well trained and are high performers and achievers.
