WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

In 2013, The Rockefeller Foundation launched its Digital Jobs Africa (DJA) initiative to catalyze new, sustainable employment opportunities and skills training for Africa youth, with a focus on the ICT sector. The Rockefeller Foundation’s goal is to positively impact 1 million lives in Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, and South Africa, and ultimately, improve the social and economic well-being of entire families, communities, and nations.

As a country partner for Africa, BPeSA is proud to be working alongside the Rockefeller Foundation in helping make Digital Jobs Africa a reality.
