Connecting African youth with digital Opportunity and ensuring digital rights for all.
LIFE Legacy is a digital inclusion program that equips young Africans living in under-served communities with demand-driven ICT and Entrepreneurship skills and connects them to internships, online work, or entrepreneurial ventures with a high possibility of earning immediate and sustainable income.
We believe the internet and digital technologies play a vital role in individual lives and promotes collective development.
Since 2007, we have worked in under-served communities in Africa, empowering young people with crucial digital, life and business skills. We are dedicated to bridging the digital gap by taking digital opportunities to young people where they are and ensuring their livelihoods are improved.
LIFE is an acronym which stands for
LIFE Legacy provides a sustainable low-cost model that allows the participants to defer payment, and it also provides them a wholesome opportunity that includes capacity building, work placement, and an opportunity to give back as they are able to participate in the overall vision of improving their livelihoods through community development projects that are completed following their training. The LIFE Legacy program includes – LIFE Training, the LIFE@School Club, and Digital Readiness Workshop for Girls.
The LIFE project is a capacity building initiative which offers 10 weeks of training in ICTs, Entrepreneurship, Life Skills and Financial Readiness to youth living in under-served communities and lacking access to tertiary education due to poverty.
We run this technology club in secondary schools within host communities. At the LIFE@School Club, students are trained weekly using the same LIFE curriculum, which focuses on digital tools and entrepreneurship.
Digital Readiness Workshop for Girls
The ‘Digital Readiness Workshop for Girls’ is a special training program designed to encourage girls to embrace entrepreneurship by leveraging digital tools, as there is research evidence to suggest that there are greater possibilities for women’s socio-economic empowerment through web-enabled ICTs.
