" We want to work but we can not, we want to learn but we lack access " Julius

Julius is part of the sixth cohort of the Elevate program, and he is one of 20 others that we wish to help empower in the next 5 months.

Four years ago, we started era92 with a bold vision to democratize technology skills. Today, our alumni are developing digital products for individuals and organizations around the world. But there is still work to be done. Our social business alone can’t reach every community, student or youth in need of technology skills. For many, these skills aren’t accessible, and the lack of access creates barriers to freedom, opportunity, and employability.

3 out of  5 youth in Uganda are like Julius. Unemployed. Unemployable. We want to change that!

We believe it's because of aspirations. We have failed in offering enough opportunities for our young people to truly dream, to believe and achieve. If you don't have aspirations, dreams and the skill, you're not going to believe in yourself. If you don't have that community of people around you telling you that you can, you won't achieve even the small things for you.

Our Solution

We are on a mission to give every young person, everywhere the opportunity to create with technology. It’s why we formed era92 elevate—because we believe our program and community can meet an unmet need, change the trajectory of lives and improve equality of opportunity in Uganda by disrupting the way the young people learn technology. Our program is designed to scale to meet the needs of underserved youth and communities they come from, as well as the needs of educators and students.

Elevate program is our commitment to drive significant, lasting social impact by improving equal access to technology skills, entrepreneurial skills and investing in catalytic solutions.

our projects teach design thinking, art, multimedia, tech and communication skills to give young people the technical and leadership tools they need to compete in the innovation economy and to be leaders in their community. era92 offers studios and mentorship in 3D design, printmaking, painting, photography, coding, graphic design, film, and animation.
