Why iDixcover Academy Exist
“Due to my personal experience an unemployed and Underemployed young African Graduate, and Due to COVID-19, unemployment among disadvantaged young graduates in Africa has increased. Many young people’s employment prospects deteriorated and many lost their jobs. I’ve launched iDixcover Academy to give passionate young Africans the most important skills and basic knowledge they need to start their own business.” Abdullatef Lawal, founder of iDixcover Academy
According to National Bureau of Statistics Nigeria’s unemployment and underemployment rate stands at 55.7%, and an estimation of over 13.9 million Nigerian youths are currently out of job. Unemployment has evidently lead to increase in banditry, kidnapping for ransom and insecurity in Nigeria. Furthermore, According to ITF over 44.2% unemployed Nigerians are due to skills gap. Data from the world bank and International Labour Organization agrees that these problems are not peculiar to Nigeria alone rather Africa at large with sub-sahara Africa been most hit. Hence while some youths pay huge amount of money to acquire these skills some left it in the hands of God.
As a result, iDixcover Academy provides:
- Free Access to local and global job, scholarships, fellowships, internships and grants
- Trains and empower the African youth on digital literacy, Vocational and Soft Skills.
- We want to enshrine trust in the mind of African youth by providing them with basic skills, tools and opportunities they need to Excel.
