Who We Are

Our Story

iKapture Networks was founded in February 2014 in response to the menace of youth unemployment and idleness that has remained a persistent issue in Nigeria. Official statistics put youth unemployment rate at 40%, with almost 80 percent of young Nigerians, unemployed and idle with low skills. Secondary school graduates between 16 and 24 years, account for the majority of the unemployed. They are out of school, idle and vulnerable to social vices. Most of them are exposed to pressure from peers and relatives, societal ills; and are compelled to make career and personal decisions that often mar rather than make their future.

 

To solve this problem, iKapture was established to educate, engage and equip out-of-school youth from low-income communities with the skills and competence to become more marketable as future employees or desirous of becoming entrepreneurs. For the past 5 years, iKapture has reached more than 5000 young people, creating job opportunities for some of them.
