Global Leading Light Initiatives (GLLI) is a registered Non-Profit driven by a strong believe that collective prosperity can be achieved in Africa by providing youths with future-proof skills
Why we exist
As automation and Information and Communications Technologies continue to disrupt the labour market, many jobs are at risk of disappearing. This would increase unemployment, resulting in poverty and anchor inequalities in Africa.
Graduate unemployment in South Africa is on the rise, while there is a skill shortage in fields such as software development, web development, network and information security web (www.advtech.co.za)
GLLI seeks to disrupt the cycle of poverty in disadvantaged communities by addressing this skills gap right from
GLLI works to catalyse economic growth in African communities by investing in its children and youth.
To provide 21st century skills, tools, space and support to young people in Africa to transform their gifts (light), knowledge and creativity into products and services to foster individual and collective prosperity.
Our goal is to one million young people in Africa to access decent jobs and create better living conditions for themselves and their communities.
