Who We Are
Gracit Technological Foundation is a community of people passionate people passionate about making significant contributions to improving the lives of unprivileged young people within Africa and we do this primarily by training and mentoring them on technological skills.
We are driven by the ideology that everyone should be given a good opportunity to thrive in the world of today. We know how important and possibly soon almost inevitable tech education is to our world today and that is why we have chosen this area to dwell on. With the constantly growing number of job roles and opportunities of today that involve technological use, It is increasingly clear that tech education is very important to harness the opportunities of our day. However tech education can be expensive and is a special privilege because it requires the possession or at least access to certain relatively “expensive tools” (computers, devices, internet, a nearby tutor) and even though they are so many free content and learning resources online, one still needs some of these expensive tools to partake of these learning resources. Gracit is working to increase the spread of these resources to people who may not be able to afford this privilege especially since this can go a long way in increasing the probability that an individual has a better standard of living.
It is our hope that individuals from unprivileged backgrounds also have at least a more equal chance to profit of the prime opportunities of our day. Our work is currently on two broad areas: Our “Tech4charity” initiative which is targeted at orphanages and our “Community Digital Empowerment” Initiative which targets local communities.
Our culture and drive can be explicitly demonstrated with the following words. We strive for more and more of these
