The Wasted Talent
In Madagascar, only 1 in every 20 people make it to university. There are few or no scholarships and thus tertiary study is a privilege reserved for the small number of people who can afford it. As a result, the majority of the most brilliant minds are limited to low-paying, unfulfilling careers.
We assess the very brightest students who can’t afford high school or univesity and select those who show exceptional motivation and computer programming aptitude.
Students receive two years of English and Computer programming instruction at our live-in-training centre in Mahanoro, a small beach town in Eastern Madagascar.
Graduates begin exciting work developing software with overseas teams. They continue to advance their skills and earn a life-changing salary to support themselves, and their families. 100% of profits made are used to train the next wave of talented students.
With the enterprise up and running, we’ll be able to grow our student base without further donations - the work completed by a single graduate will fund an estimated seven further students.
