Educate! works to transform education in Africa to teach youth to solve poverty for themselves and their communities. It provides youth with skills training in leadership, entrepreneurship and workforce readiness along with mentorship to start real businesses at school. Educate!’s goal is to make this practical, skills-based model part of national education systems.
In 2016 Educate! is working in 100 schools in Rwanda and 12% of secondary schools in Uganda (350 schools) reaching over 120,000 students. A Randomized Controlled Trial found that Graduates earn double the income of a control group and have a 64% increase in business creation.
