STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) education is a driver of economic performance and is essential for helping growing economies compete in the global market, create jobs (especially STEAM jobs). Despite Africa lagging behind other regions in STEAM, it has great untapped potential to transform its own and the global economy thanks to its unique demographic status. Today, Africa has the world’s largest population of young people. According to the United Nations World Population Prospects, over 60% of Africa’s population is currently under 25. Less than 25% of African higher education students are in STEAM fields, with the majority of students studying social sciences and humanities according to the African Development Bank. Unfortunately, most African schools do not specialize in STEAM subjects, and since few students can afford to travel abroad for education in STEAM subjects, it is vital to focus on education in Africa itself.
Our STEAM program will form partnerships with rural, regional leaders and schools in Ghana, West Africa, to introduce STEAM fundamentals to rural Ghana students, from elementary to college level. Our goal is to empower the underserved, underprivileged, and technologically impoverished students through STEAM education with the hope of training them to fill the void of technology opportunities around the world.
