Social Impact Project for Marketing Guru to Support Higher Education in Africa


How This Works

In the MovingWorlds Institute Global Fellowship, you will learn how to advance your for-good career while getting hands on experience on projects like this one.

Project Description and Impact

More than half of Nigeriens don’t complete primary school, and fewer than one in ten attend secondary school. As a result, only 19.9% of the population is literate. The overwhelming majority – 80% of Nigeriens – live in poverty, but at current growth rates the population is set to double in 17 years. We are a non-profit University in Niger that aspires to prepare the most talented young people in francophone Africa to lead the development of their nations as entrepreneurs and ethical leaders. We import global best practices in higher education to Niger, using technology to foster global citizenship and develop 21st-century skills.

We are trying to elevate our brand globally to be able to attract the most talented young and mission-driven people to come and work with us, to attract the world's most innovative partners in providing quality education and to spread the word about the impact that our organization is creating in Niger. 

We are looking for someone who is passionate about the future of higher education in Africa, motivated to engage and inspire young leaders and has a desire to build something lasting from scratch.

By dedicating your time to help us with this project, you will be directly supporting us to scale up our activities in Sahel region and to attract the most brilliant students from across Sahel region to increase diversity on campus, which also facilitate the learning and brings about exposure to each member of our community.
