Where we work




Who we serve: Youth in rural areas.

What we do: Develop basic digital literacy training that address
factors contributing to unemployment and poverty in the region.

Where: Colombia

Why: Of Colombia’s 13 million young people, 4.5 million are idle;
neither enrolled in school nor employed. Youth represent more
than half of the registered unemployed, and most young people
that work do so in precarious jobs. The lack of employment, education,
and entrepreneurship opportunities for Colombian youth is closely tied
to the conflict in poor, rural areas.

Who we serve: Underserved, economically disadvantaged
individuals and communities in the U.S., particularly middle school age girls.

What we do: Develop programs that provide technology training
and inspire STEM careers and education.

Where: USA

Why: Adolescent years are the most precarious for girls living in the U.S.
Many of them do not sustain their interest in STEM topics during their
middle school years. Providing STEM- and technology-infused academic
enrichment programs increases their interest and helps connect girls
with sustainable career choices.

sector in the last decade, presenting viable opportunities
to equip and empower the continents’s fast-growing
unemployed youth population and women with
appropriate technology.
