Ingressive For Good equips young Africans in need with tech skills to help them impact and contribute to the development of Africa, socially and economically. To test the viability of the I4G program, we launched a pilot phase (July 1, 2020 – October 1, 2020).
This report encompasses our impact so far:
With collaboration at the heart of Ingressive For Good, is impacting the lives of Africans, one youth at a time. During this pilot phase, I4G partnered with Coursera, Facebook, Datacamp, HNG Internship, Enye, SemiColon, Tekedia, CareerBuddy, FindWorka, Live Your Dreams Africa (LYDA), Covenant University, Babcock University, StudentBuild, Bankole Williams, and so many amazing organizations to reach the Africans in need and provide training, scholarships, job placements.
In light of the economic crises in Africa, Ingressive for Good and DataCamp partnered to give 1000 licenses to help African youths develop their data skills.
The I4G Coursera program gave 5000+ Africans access to 4000+ courses with an intensive curriculum designed to prepare learners for entry-level and expert roles in the tech ecosystem from leading universities such as Yale, Michigan, and Stanford, as well as industry leaders such as Google and IBM.
It also provided access to highly sought-after professional certificates and high-demand skills in areas like personal development, technology, and career development to build a well-rounded tech professional ready for
the job market.
