Youth For Technology
Youth for Technology Foundation (YTF) was founded by Njideka Harry, KSM'12. YTF is an innovative non-profit organization with a mission to establish enriched learning communities where the use of technology affords opportunities for marginalized youth and women living in the developing world.
Partnering with youth and women at the base of the economic pyramid, YTF designs and implements programs across four pillars: education, entrepreneurship, agriculture and health. To date, over 450,000 youth and women in Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, South Africa and Kenya have positively benefited from YTF’s programs.
YTF is committed to demonstrating the effective and cost-efficient replication of Community Technology and Learning Centers (CTLC) through our CTLC-in-a-Box franchise model. CTLC’s are knowledge “hubs” that reach, serve, involve, improve and transform the lives of community members. YTF partners with local communities throughout the developing world empowering people to improve the socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries and future generations. In 2012, YTF expanded its work to Latin America with the establishment of the Soacha Digital Village in Colombia.
On YTF’s future radar is the establishment of a socially responsible business consisting of a franchised model of community technology centers in urban centers across the U.S. These centers with have far-reaching and life changing impact on young people as innovators and as the future of the global economy.
