Growing Up Africa Talks
Building Sustainable Communities
Collective . Creative . Capital
The Growing Up Africa Project is reliant upon monetary, 'in-kind', and technical donations from both individuals and corporations. This generous support is crucial in realizing Growing Up Africa's goals of coming to the aid of the construction industry critically short on talent and skill, and allowing students of the building industry to receive real-world, hands-on experience; Growing Up Africa simultaneously train youth and empower communities.
The industry wins, principals network, communities thrive and students for their own networks. Students gain access to opportunities, learn critical workplace skills, teamwork, and public speaking, get exposure, and build goodwill while strengthening confidence and pride. We are a progressive initiative built up brick by brick by a small army of volunteers who are rich in spirit, passion, and commitment.
Growing Up Africa mentors are the construction industry's guidance counselors.
80% + of the construction budget is provided by in-kind; product sponsorship, materials, equipment, technical skills, and more.
