Why We Exist

Ethiopia's youth face significant challenges that require immediate and innovative solutions. With 41% of the population under the age of 15 and 28% between the ages of 15 and 29, the country has a remarkably young demographic. This youthful population, however, confronts a daunting reality: a staggering 27% unemployment rate.

Our Solution 

Youth Innovators aims to address these challenges by empowering young people with the skills, knowledge, and opportunities they need to thrive. Through our rural and digital interventions, we strive to create pathways for youth to overcome these barriers, fostering a brighter and more prosperous future for Ethiopia. Our innovative programs target both rural and urban areas, tailoring interventions to meet the unique needs of each community.

Rural Area

In rural areas, Youth Innovators focuses on empowering farmers and herders through a dynamic reality TV and radio show. Hosted by engaging and energetic male and female presenters, this show provides new insights and practical innovations in an entertaining format. The goal is to offer practical solutions that farmers and herders can apply to their daily lives, helping them overcome real challenges and lead healthier, more productive lives. The content is developed in collaboration with experts who regularly feature in episodes, showcasing creativity and entrepreneurial problem-solving.

This platform offers audio lessons and gamified exercises, making it easier and more enjoyable for young people to learn English.

Learning digitally not only improves English skills but also provides a foundation for developing broader digital literacy, equipping youth with essential skills for the future.
