Abdullateef: Did you know that Nigeria has the world's second-highest rate of youth unemployment with 13.9 million unemployed youths—more than Rwanda's entire population? iDixcover is addressing the problem of unemployment and underemployment among northern youth, women, and people with disabilities who have been ravaged by the prolonged insecurities in the region. Our mission is to provide free access to information on opportunities, mentors, and career education to 10 million African youths and create 10,000 jobs by 2030.
Sowmya: Education is supposed to inspire young people to equip them to work, earn a living, and help solve the great challenges in their villages, their country, and the world. The problem is, mainstream education in India stifles creativity and fails to prepare young people for work or life. The substandard education, an explosion in the working-age population, and ever-more-urgent challenges facing the world put India on a collision course for the future. But there is a way forward. Experiential learning puts an emphasis on creativity, innovation, and collaboration. At Lead by Design, we enable young people to unlock their creative potential to build an equitable, resilient, and thriving future.
Ash: Our mission is to attract and develop an army of innovators and solve problems at every stage of their journey, and ensure equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all. We achieve this mission by enabling the most seasoned and supportive leaders of the education and workforce industry to share their insight and mentorship with every education innovator—entrepreneurs, investors, educators, professionals, researchers, policy-makers, students, foundations, corporations, governments, and talent.
