Our Why

Positive and sustainable impact on youth

By 2045, the population of adolescents and young adults in Africa will exceed 2 billion individuals. This vibrant youth holds the keys to a bright future for the continent. To fully exploit this potential, it is essential to invest in developing the human, entrepreneurial and technological capital of young people.

Students learn a lot of subjects in school but are not exposed to emerging technologies, entrepreneurial culture, the mindset of global leaders, and real-world skills. They watch companies like Google, OCP Group, UBA, and Facebook become multi-billion dollar giants without knowing how they work.

We believes that building a fairer, more prosperous, and sustainable world starts with young people. Empowering young people with early entrepreneurship and technology skills is the cornerstone of a brighter future – one that’s prosperous, equitable, and sustainable for all.

Our focus

We partners with governments, private sector and financial supporters to equip youth with :

Emerging Technologies

Schule Z bridges the gap between African youth and emerging technologies. Schule Z introduces students to emerging technology : AI, Agritech, Climate and Renewable energy, Blockchain, Biotech, etc.

Entrepreneurship skills

We help high school students to start their journey to becoming the next generation of world-shaping business owners. The biggest names in business had to start somewhere.

Results is the key

Build real projects within a few months.

No prior knowledge needed. We expose students to emerging technologies and sciences, while training real-world skills and entrepreneurship. They learn from real entrepreneurs and technologists, not professors.
