Learning Lions is a non-profit organization founded in Turkana county (Kenya) focused on the selection, education and training of young adults in order to gift them with high value skills in the areas of:- Software development, Graphic Design and Media Production.
The ultimate goal of Learning Lions is to reduce the high unemployment rate in impoverished rural areas of Eastern Africa and enable talented and motivated young adults to work and live a better life full of perspective in their region of origin. Ultimately, Learning Lions with the help of Startup Lions should provide young adults the tools for entrepreneurship and lead them to economic independence.
This is especially relevant in rural areas such as Turkana County (North Kenya) where usual sources of income such as agriculture or manufacturing are extremely limited due to infertile soil and poor infrastructure. But with the chance of having internet access! The skills taught by Learning Lions in combination with the possibility to market them online (Startup Lions), perfectly respond to a growing demand for simple ICT and Media tasks for the regional and international markets and the growing awareness of (corporate) social responsibility.
