Abdullateef: Did you know that Nigeria has the world's second-highest rate of youth unemployment with 13.9 million unemployed youths—more than Rwanda's entire population? iDixcover is addressing the problem of unemployment and underemployment among northern youth, women, and people with disabilities who have been ravaged by the prolonged insecurities in the region. Our mission is to provide free access to information on opportunities, mentors, and career education to 10 million African youths and create 10,000 jobs by 2030.
Pulkit: Illumina Africa’s mission is to provide sustainable energy and water infrastructure to every single individual on our planet and the wider universe. Currently, we build, own, and operate, solar photovoltaic power plants and provide low-cost sustainable electricity to industries, offices, residential and off-grid individuals.
Taylor: The current way the world tackles malnutrition is not okay. I have been obsessed with providing nutritious low-cost food that is accessible to families living in extreme poverty. This work is especially urgent today because the rise of processed food in developing countries is creating a new reality—obesity and diabetes alongside chronic malnutrition—a double burden of malnutrition. The international development community collectively believes there is no business model for selling nutritious food to the poor. I have seen it work, though, and at the same time, I have so many close friends who have suffered the ravaging effects of malnutrition on their bodies and minds. For me, my work with Tailored Food is not a "career" or a "job" but a deep passion.
