With overall school enrolment on the rise in Sub-Saharan Africa, why is unemployment among graduates still so rampant? Among the many factors, one stands out: too many young people are being trained to become employees and not employers.
At WeGo Innovate, we water the seeds of imagination and creativity to help young people take their brilliant ideas and grow them into promising ventures. Our goal is to inspire and share knowledge, nurture and amplify ideas and help young Africans build sustainable businesses that help Africa rise.
We search for highly skilled students doing outstanding work in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and guide them in order to keep their creative spark burning.
At WeGo Innovate, we get the opportunity to discover socially beneficial innovations by youths from africa all over the world.
On our ‘Student Projects’ platform, we feature inventors and creative youths with ground-breaking ideas that will make an huge impact in our society, as well as make the lives of others better. The students come up with lots of socially innovative ideas that are relevant to different sectors of the society.
One of such ground-breaking ideas is ‘Urban Lanes’ which was founded by an all-female team of four from different parts of the world. The team consists of - Adedunni Roberts from Nigeria, Srishti Gupta from India, Elif Parmaksiz from Turkey and Johana Narvaez from Columbia. They are Masters of Architecture students, studying Sustainable Architecture and Landscape Design at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
At WeGo Innovate, we are passionate about supporting socially innovative ideas that can help make the lives of others better.
