Challenge

Colombia is the third most unequal country in the world. 27% of its population live in poverty and 7% live with less than USD 1,25 per day. This condition of inequality limits the opportunities of youngsters to continue their education upon graduating from public schools, leaving them with scarce options to foresee a dignified future. Most of them search for employment in low-paid jobs or turn to illegal activities in order to subsist. Our goal is to work with 100 youngsters in 2020.

Solution

In the framework of the implementation of the fourth industrial revolution, Colombia is committed to training over 20,000 people in software programming by the year 2021. Each year there are thousands of students that cannot start formal studies due to economic limitations. Our goal is to identify and select talented youngsters in order to offer them integral training and employment opportunities hence contributing to the private sectors needs to locate and recruit human talents in this field.

Long-Term Impact

Colombia has adhered to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and has established its agenda for 2030. This project aims to impact, in one year, the lives of 100 youngsters, and indirectly their families and communities. Empowering these young men and women so they can subsist in a dignified manner will mean less poverty, less homicides, and less theft. This will, in the long term, contribute to the achievement of the country's SDG, and will have a positive impact socially and economically.
