60% of the Rwandan population is under 24 years old. Yet most young people, especially young women, remain unemployed or underemployed, without the skills or business knowledge needed to succeed in the workforce.
At Indego Africa, we are committed to helping young women in Africa reach their full potential. Our Vocational Training program helps youth in Rwanda build sustainable career paths in the artisan sectorand lift themselves out of poverty.
Among the 45 students in our first Vocational Training class: 0% were employed at the beginning of the program. By graduation, 100% became employed as artisans!
Our Vocational Training program is fundamentally changing the lives of young women in Rwanda. Youth who once lived without hope for the future, are now becoming businesswomen and entrepreneurs in their communities. But to keep this program alive, and reach more vulnerable young people in Rwanda, we need your support!
Donate today to transform lives—by investing in youth, you’ll invest in the future.
