We realised that there is a huge disconnect between the career choices our youth are making and what the industry needs and wants
There is an even greater disconnect between the disadvantaged communities and the industry.
Abaguquli aims to bridge that gap and contribute to youth development, upliftment, skills development and employment. From engaging with youth, and working in communities we have observed that our youth want to create a better life, get a good education and want to rise above their circumstances.
We found that most youth were not aware of the 4th Industrial Revolution and career opportunities relating to it, they were still studying towards and sacrificing time and money for a qualification that will probably be irrelevant and that some youth were indecisive about the future, what it brings and how they will find their rightful place in it.
