Who we are
Digital Africa Foundation (DAF) is a Non-Governmental Organization that seeks to transform and empower the youth of Africa through a platform that will offer a wide range of opportunities in an effort to meet and address the challenges of youth unemployment. Digital Africa Foundation seeks to empower and change the lives of youth in Kenya, South Sudan & Democratic Republic of Congo.
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 programs to ensure that the youth have opportunities to associate, be represented and participate in political, socio-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.
Thus, DAF is determined to register youths whose interests lie in, Agribusiness, ICT and entrepreneurship for training, mentorship as well as connecting with the necessary resources and organizations that will provide long term or short term opportunities for sustainability
