In collaboration with industry leaders like Cisco, Huawei, 21Skills, and the Red Cross Innovation Unit, we offer technical and soft skills training. To date, more than 150 youths have acquired valuable digital skills through this program.

Industrial Attachment

Our Industrial Attachment program offers a well-structured curriculum for attachés from various institutions to acquire industry-specific skills. Participants gain hands-on experience in fields such as web development, networking, and essential soft skills like working with young people and effective communication. We prioritize teaching 21st-century skills to equip participants for success.

Campus Ambassador

Through our Campus Ambassador program, we collaborate closely with six tertiary institutions. Our ambassadors share information about the opportunities and benefits that Swahilipot provides to young people. In return, we offer support to these ambassadors through workshops, meetups, online courses, and hackathons. This program nurtures young talents and fosters a vibrant tech community.

Pitching Thursday

Our enterprise program, known as Pitching Thursday, provides a platform for young individuals to pitch their ideas or ventures. Participants receive valuable feedback from judges and the audience on the spot. This program offers exposure and serves as a catalyst for growth and development. We have supported over 10 ventures to date, aiding them in their entrepreneurial journeys.

Through these initiatives, we aim to create a conducive environment for young individuals to explore and excel in the tech industry. Our diverse programs and opportunities nurture talent, encourage innovation, and empower the next generation of tech leaders.
