Develop Leaders Reduce Poverty

We are an independent father and son team with roots
in the Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire), West  Africa. As professionals educated in Computer Science and Communications, our mission is to help reduce unemployment and poverty among the young people in our country. Our approach to train young people in starting up businesses, improving their existing businesses, developing career skills, and creating career paths. We will also aim to provide funding to start up small-scale businesses, such as restaurants/cook shops, food distribution centers, and clothes-making centers. We believe that this contribution will help young people who are educated but cannot find a job or have the funds to start a business, and those who may not have college education but have the potential to succeed at a small business that they can grow and that will develop them.

This initiative will start with a two week workshop in July, starting by training participants in leading successful enterprises. With enough support we aim to provide the participants with capital, allowing them to bring their ideas to life.

Join us as we give a helping hand to the young people of the Ivory Coast!
