Who we are

What is GLLI?

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 school
