WE’RE ON A MISSION TO BUILD 100 INNOVATION HUBS ACROSS AFRICA BY 2025.

Every solar powered space we build is in the low-income communities we serve, and means 20 young adults will join our 12 month bootcamp and 1,000+ school kids will get to learn how to code! Want to make a huge impact?

We Are Uncommon

Our mission is to empower young adults from low-income communities with the technology education and opportunities they need to escape poverty forever.

We do this by creating innovative learning environments, teaching in-demand tech skills and placing graduates in meaningful employment.

Take a look at the impact we’ve made.

Our Innovation Hubs are where so much of the magic happens. Once we find a community in need, we work with local stakeholders to identify an old building that can be refurbished, or find a location that can house one of our recycled shipping containers. UI/UX Design, Computer Coding, Digital Marketing and Entrepreneurship training starts here!

SEE WHO BENEFITS FROM OUR MISSION.

Youths

There are few greater feelings in the world than the one you get when watching the excitement appear across a child’s face as they write their first few lines of code. It’s pure magic, and it simply never gets old.

Young Adults

The young adults in our 12- Month bootcamp are the heart and soul of our organization. Everyday they come to class and soak up as much information as possible. It is a true joy to watch them give back and teach the next generation each afternoon.

Clients

To work with our amazing clients is a privilege we don’t take for granted. Not only does each project bring in crucial funds for our non-profit, but the work itself provides invaluable learning experiences for our students & developers.
