inHhive is the new name for Future First Global, rebranding in autumn 2019 after being originally founded in 2013.
The roots of the organization can be traced back to a UK-based charity, Future First. They spotted the injustice of only elite schools benefitting from well-established alumni networks and sought to put that right by supporting state schools to build them too.
Inspired by the success in the UK, a nine-country research project looked into the potential for the same concept to be applied elsewhere in the world. Its conclusion was that there was significant support for the idea, but a lack of investment, prioritization and expertise held progress back. We stepped in to work with partners across the world to meet that need.
Over the past six years, building expertise and experience working from New Zealand to Rwanda, the organization realized that the approach wasn’t just suitable for schools – but that the same network building model could be applied to a whole range of youth structures.
The organization is supporting PEDN to develop alumni networks for schools across Uganda and the Mastercard Foundation to build a pan-African network from its scholars and youth leaders across the continent.
Now, rebranded as inHive, the organization has a clearer sense of purpose than ever.See more
