Training young people for the Jobs that African firms offer

Many young people with a university education cannot find work due to a lack of the appropriate skills and knowledge needed in the workplace. The technical skills learned in schools are out-dated and do not match the state of the-art-technologies used at the workplace.

At M-Soma we provide opportunities to gain on demand digital skills, and the support needed to start a business.
