The Iduka African Pilot Project (iAPP) covers the five geographical African regions:
The project is structured in three stages and five phases as outlined in the Timeline. To assist us design and develop this initiative, the Preparatory Phase (phase 1) called for the set up of a team of Student Volunteer Interns responsible for our Student and Community Outreach Programs throughout each region.
During the fund development phase (phase 2) which started in the Fall of 2011, the focus of our project shifted to working together with local field partners and local chapters around various joint initiatives, including your “LinkedIn Challenge” scholarships.
One of our main objectives is to identify a joint project to develop and implement with each of our local field partners.
We have also unveiled two campaigns: Cycle For Education focused on raising awareness about post-secondary education in Africa; and Jazz For Education centered on raising the funds necessary to implement our programs locally.
- Girls’ education
- Careers in education and arts
- Education of ethnic minorities, refugees, and migrant students
- Students pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)
- Green energy and Environmental studies
- Students pursuing careers in civil education, good governance, human rights, leadership, and majors promoting social justice
Although our current priority is the Iduka African Pilot Project, we welcome the participation of youth from around the world through local chapters and foster long lasting partnerships with local field partners interested in sponsoring local students.
We are also particularly interested in learning about prominent public figures who would like to serve on our external Scholarship Advisory Board.
