Our programs increase access to education, entrepreneurship, financial inclusion and technology for girls, youth, and women. We employ an innovative use of culturally-sensitive classroom-based instruction, experiential/hands-on learning, STEM enrichment activities, and digital technologies.

Since 2000, our flagship program, YTF Academy, has graduated more than 320,000 youth, with 96% going on to higher education within two years and 55% choosing technology-related fields.

YTF Academy has a high job placement rate with students securing employment paying, on average, three times more in salaries. YTF graduates perform better than non-YTF employees; 40% are promoted within 3-6 months of graduation.

These efforts have translated to:


Digital and life skills training for over

1.6 million

Business and financial literacy skills for over

women entrepreneurs and their apprentices
Software development and coding skills for over
