The African Dream Foundation
The African Dream Foundation believes that meaningfully investing in education, up-skilling and the employment of Africa’s youth, are key drivers in capitalising on the demographic dividend and lift many young people out of generational poverty. They enable a network of leaders with purpose, and who will not only deliver results, but also influence accelerated socio-economic progress across Africa. They do this through our Scholarships and Fellowships.
The issue of youth education, unemployment and under-employment poses complexities on many levels. That’s why, The African Dream Foundation sits within a broader Theory of Change (ToC). In order to achieve the outcomes in their ToC, they have developed a framework that guides our investments and approach to addressing the issues and opportunities. The framework outlines how Scholarships and Fellowships integrate to provide both financial and non-financial support in the recipient’s education through both formal and informal education and training. Both Scholarships and Fellowships are essential in providing the appropriate wrap-around support to enable youth to actively participate in the formal labour market. See more
