Approximately 200 million people in sub-Saharan Africa are between the ages of 15 and 24. According to the World Bank, African youth comprise 60 percent of those who are unemployed, which is a major barrier to the region’s continued economic growth. By 2050, sub-Saharan Africa will surpass China and India as the world’s largest and youngest workforce. However, a troubling lack of investment in the training of this workforce, particularly women, could greatly impact the projected growth and performance of economies throughout Africa.
For the last 45 years, OIC International has been on the frontlines of the effort to fully develop Africa’s workforce through quality and market driven workforce development training and job placement. Our mission is to alleviate poverty through developing a trained and employable workforce with skills to work in many of the key and critical core focus sectors.
- Customer service / retail
- Vocational Training (construction trade and infrastructure; auto repairs; hospitality management; fashion design; office administration)
Workforce Development is the key to this future. OIC International, in partnership with some of the largest corporations in the world is making this dream a reality.
