The Faith Mangope Technology and Leadership Institute (FMTALI) is established to align Africa’s youth, particularly young women, with a working environment governed by the 4th Industrial Revolution. It exists to Educate, Empower, and Equip African women and youths about Jobs 4.0, thereby assuming the role of catalyst for the success of their future career endeavours.
FMTALI provides a support structure for women who are interested in becoming entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in the ICT Sector. We expose African women to global opportunities especially with BRICS partners in the ICT Sector and facilitate their participation in the sector.
FMTALI however is not purely about teaching tech skills for 4IR. We are about building sustainable young women who remain in the profession and drive future growth on the African Continent. We look at what it means to be a 21st Century Woman. There are a number of very successful Tech programs that teach coding and IT skills for the girl child however often these programs don’t adequately address the other key core skills that need to integrate with the tech skills in order to build sustainable entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs. At FMTALI – we see our students as future leaders of their own businesses, existing corporates, change-makers, industrialists, digital icons, disruptors, innovators, mothers, wives, and their own powerhouse. This means we need to train them with both the soft and hard skills required in the workplace according to the WEF Future Jobs report 2020.
