Problem Statement

AI is significantly transforming the way we work, learn, and live. Marginalized populations should not be excluded from the opportunities that these changes create. Tech education is crucial to addressing poverty, boosting AI literacy, economic growth, and creating more job opportunities – it’s our shared responsibility to make it accessible for everyone everywhere.

Innovative Collaboration For Global Impact

We believe in engaging with a range of stakeholders, including academia, public and private sector leaders, and civil society, providing free AI/ML education, mentoring, scholarships, workforce and skill development pathways. Together, we work within different national, cultural and language contexts to facilitate outreach, learning, policy dialogue, collective action and partnerships in technology workforce development.
