MACI Digital Equity training for low income children

Micheal-Oba, Daniel, Godwin and Orie – MACI Digital Equity

Date grant awarded: June 28, 2019

According to World Economic Forum projection, most of the work available today would no longer be in existence in the next twenty years, as technology will replace most of the available jobs. UNESCO adds that more than half of those in schools are neither learning nor acquiring adequate skills. This is where Mentor an African Child Initiative – MACI – a social impact initiative, started. The goal of the work is to provide training and mentorship for children in low-income communities. The children are trained and mentored in skills such as ICT and STEM education for innovation and entrepreneurship.

As a result, they are exposed to different opportunities which are not readily accessible to them in their immediate environment. We are a capacity building initiative for children who are tomorrow’s nation builders. The grant will enable us to train more children and provide them with resources and computers for continuous use. We currently operate in Abeokuta and its environs in Ogun State.
