Facilitating Brain Gain and Harnessing Africa’s Human Capital
Sankofa Africa and Africa Internship Academy has signed a partnership to provide internships in Africa to Africans at home and in the Diaspora.
This mutually beneficial partnership will help facilitate Africa’s brain gain and provide a skilled labour force and provide businesses in Africa with a skilled and efficient talent pool.
Africa is considered as one of the fastest growing economies in the world. With that comes opportunity for Africans to be a part of that growth. The vision of Sankofa Africa and the African Internship Academy is collaborating in ensuring the readiness of Africa’s youth in tapping into these opportunities.
Africa Internship Academy has run two successful cohorts with the third cohort starting in April. The first intake of interns from the diaspora is anticipated to take place in July and August. All interested parties are invited to visit www.sankofaafrica.com and www.africainternshipacademy.com for further details.
Sankofa Africa furthers Africa’s brain gain by promoting the migration of skilled African professionals and graduates in the Diaspora to Africa. African Internship Academy, recognising the rate of unemployment on the continent grooms Africa’s next generational change agents through the provision of internships. Participants have the opportunity to intern with some of the most renowned business in Africa.
