Paradigm Initiative is a leading social enterprise working to promote digital rights and inclusion in Africa. The organisation is dedicated to improving the livelihoods of young people in underserved communities by providing an ICT-enabled support system.
Paradigm Initiative’s flagship program is L.I.F.E, a digital inclusion program initiated in 2007. L.I.F.E provides beneficiaries with a 10-week full time education in Life, ICT, Financial readiness and Entrepreneurship skills. The training is held at three centres in three underserved communities in Ajegunle, Aba and Dakata-Kano, all year round and at no cost to the beneficiaries.
The organisation also engages in advocacy, policy intervention and training focused on improving digital rights and internet freedom on the African continent, to ensure that people are able to use the internet and digital tools in a free and conducive environment that not only spurs innovation but also catalyzes its development and spread.
