Those living in rural areas are tired of being trained and remaining unemployed. They are hungry for earning opportunities. It is, however, very difficult and costly to connect with these individuals to offer them training or work.
The Fanaka Foundation licenses the M4Jam platform to deliver community-based solutions.
Through our platform entrepreneurs are able to get access to development and opportunities in their area. Thus not only giving unemployed individuals in these areas the opportunity to get paid for micro-jobs, but also giving the entrepreneurs themselves the means by which to build and grow their own businesses.
The Fanaka Academy develops people within informal areas with
demand-led skills, knowledge and experience.
