Africa:
An enormous pool of untapped potential
Workflow

Africa currently has the fastest growing population in the world and is set to have the largest workforce by 2035 and half of the world’s population by the turn of the century.

Workflow

40-50% of this booming workforce and population will consist primarily of Africa’s youth (with an average age of 20). Yet, majority of the continent’s youth are unemployed and could potentially remain unemployable.

Workflow

The pervasive underinvestment in education, particularly at the tertiary level, is to blame for this crisis. Africa now has one of the lowest tertiary education enrolment rates (8% vs 26% in India or 87% in the West).

Workflow

Unfortunately, traditional sources of financing are neither available nor sufficient to meet the rising demands. We must therefore leverage private capital and innovative financing methods to unlock the innate talents of millions..

Empower

multiple generations

with just one investment

Your investment in ALFC will not only benefit the current generation but also create opportunities for subsequent generations of African youth.

By investing now, ALFC is able to finance the education of Africa’s top talent and future leaders, who in turn agree to repay with a fixed percentage of their income for an agreed period of time after graduation.

Through these repayments, one generation of students effectively sponsors the next generation of students.

Ultimately, with your investment, you can touch more lives with the same dollar. Enabling not just one, but many aspiring leaders, professionals and entrepreneurs, to obtain an education regardless of their financial background.
