JMK Foundation stands for "Juny Mutoba KENSELA Foundation". JMK Foundation
encompasses two concepts: Information Technology (ICT) and Entrepreneurship. JMK Foundation
seeks to reduce youth unemployment, estimated at over 70% in the African continent,
through the acquisition of adequate skills by these youth. JMK Foundation focuses on
ICT, while ensuring that the youth acquire basic entrepreneurship skills. The ICT world is
experiencing a high demand for manpower and business opportunities. We help young people
create Startups and face the ever-increasing recruitment demands
of our modern world, the later being growingly innovatory and ever changing.
In this modern digital age, companies, industries and institutions rely more on technology to achieve their strategic goals. To create the expected value for an organization, this technology must be implemented and operated by a sufficiently skilled workforce.
JMK Foundation has a twofold objective: firstly, to bridge the gap
between the rapidly evolving information technology and the competence of the young
ICT community in developing countries. Secondly, to prepare these young professionals
for the employment offered by investment opportunities, enabling them to become
business leaders and decision makers.
JMK Foundation's approach is to provide condensed and tailor-made capacity building courses in specific ICT fields and to create a community of young people ready to launch startups.
JMK Foundation’s target group includes on one hand, the young generation of students and graduates as well as all those who wish to pursue a career in software engineering, and on the other hand, those who wish to start small and medium-sized businesses in the modern technology sector.
The funding approach of the JMK Foundation projects is to seek grants from the international donor community, with logistical and operational support from the recipient country.
