iBUILD partners with The Maa Trust for youth training program
iBUILD and The Maa Trust are working together to upgrade houses for the Masai Tribe. African youth population growth rate highest in the world at 51%, while simultaneously the youth account for 60% of African unemployment. The Maa Trust, a community based organization in the Maasai Mara has partnered with iBUILD in a move aimed at training to empower the youth in the Kenya’s Mara area – with the initiative’s long-term goal meant to offer employment opportunities for Maasai youth.
With massive populations of youth coming of age in Africa, jobs and housing will both be in high demand. iBUILD is driving change through the mobile app, activating citizens in a DIY movement to augment housing supply through capacity building (training a new generation of skilled construction workers) innovation (natural resources/materials manufacturing) and project management tools for self managed construction success.
