Unlocking the power and potential of youth in Africa with the skills, capacity development, mentorship, access to seed funding and connection to thrive succeed in today’s economy.
To develop local leaders and entreprenuers in Africa to create positive change in their communities.
Bunifu’s Vision for 2023 is to measurably impact 1000 directly and reach broadly 5000 local leaders and entrepreurs in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda.
In the Democratic Republic of Congo, more than 80 % of aged 15 to 35 have no access to steady employment and live on less than $2 a day. As a result, poverty in the country is widespread and severe, posing a big threat to the stability of the country. High unemployment rates have left many motivated, connected young people looking for ways to build a better, brighter future for their communities. Couple this with the dramatic improvement in the Ease of Doing Business Ranking (EDBR), continuing tax reform and increased school completion rates, and it is clear that the youth is poised to play an important role in the economic revival of the African continent.
However, growing evidence suggests most young people lack the 21st century skills and capacity building required to succeed in inadequate formal sector jobs.
Bunifu is unlocking the potential and power of youth in Africa with the skills, capacity building, startup investment and mentorship to succeed in today’s economy.
