why we exist
In rural communities across Africa, young people particularly from low income backgrounds, face exclusions in all its form and constructs. In particular, lack of or poor access to Quality Education, especially among the poorest and among girls, is preventing millions of people from escaping the cycle of extreme poverty and living to their fullest potential.
How do we innovatively address this social construct with sustainable approaches that takes into account local realities,drives personal growth and community development?
The Mindset Initiative exists to provide opportunities for such transformational shift.
Founded in April 2019, The Mindset Initiative for sustainable education is a non-governmental organization that improves access and quality of education for poor and vulnerable children across rural communities of Africa through resource mobilization, policy advocacy, economic empowerment and infrastructural support
