Hello, my name is Sean and I am one of the co-founders of Ingressive for Good. We are seeking your support to raise $500K to train 50K African youths this year.
Since the pandemic, we have met thousands of unemployed youth who live under $20 a month, taking up odd jobs to make ends meet. One of those youths was Crystalbell, she sold soap and made less than $20 a month, but all that changed when she encountered Ingressive for Good, took one of our training programs, got a laptop, and landed a job that multiplied her income by 10X. Crystabell is not alone, there are so many people like her, and some have experienced transformation through Ingressive for Good. Some of our beneficiaries have become founders of multimillion-dollar businesses, and thousands have gotten jobs. You can watch the video below to hear the story of some beneficiaries:
The barrier to entry for tech is so much lower than in other professions, yet the returns are higher. According to a report by Payscale, a tech employee earns 2x to 5x more salary than a peer in a non-tech role. Despite the proven value of tech, “financial need” remains a fundamental obstacle for young people, as many African youths live below a living wage.
Our goal is to create and increase the earning power of one million African youths by empowering them with tech skills and resources to help them impact and contribute to the development of Africa socially and economically. So far, we have trained over 150K people across all African countries. View our reports here.
