Digital Jobs Center
A digital collaborative Employment Accelerator system that links youth in Uganda to entry level apprenticeships and work opportunities. The platform provides access to soft skills training, partners with the private sector in Uganda and globally to fulfill positions in their firms. The Firms also provide their staff with volunteers who support the youth with employment readiness training support. mock interviews and guides, mentorship and coaching.
Our overall objective of the DJC is to create a gateway for young ladies to be informed, learn, participate and contribute to shaping the future Uganda’s digital economy, specifically in the remote work space while piggybacking off global exposure.
WITU launched this program in 2020 with the aim of reducing Uganda’s unemployment rate especially among young women by connecting them to remote work opportunities. At the DJC, we envision a community where young Ugandan women learn, work , earn to boost their livelihoods, educate themselves and their children from their homes leveraging affordable technology infrastructure and the internet and therefore being valuable contributors to their societies.
