iiAfrica helps enhance STEM graduates' employability and entrepreneurship in Africa by leveraging our relationships with employers and academic partners to set up our fellows for success in their careers.

Human Head


Youth unemployment does not just affect individuals --but their families and the country's economy as well. Our goal is to assist up to 1 million STEM graduates in finding meaningful employment opportunities by 2030 across Africa.

As an organisation that is intentional in driving sustainability on the African continent, we want to shine a light on our collective responsibility, as shapers and participants of the World of Work, to leverage our expertise and impact to make employment a key driver of sustainable development.
