The problem needing to be solved

This collaboration is between Vollie and Youth Agenda (http://www.youthagenda.org/). Youth Agenda (YA) wants to connect Youth (aged 18-24) in Kenya with mentors that can support young people in Kenya and their professional growth. Currently in Kenya the unemployment rate is at 22%, higher than most African countries, and YA gets daily requests from the youth that they work with pleading for opportunities to progress their career. Vollie and YA are partnering to connect young Kenyan’s with professionals right across Australia for the purpose of virtual mentoring.

Once connected through Vollie these two parties can Skype and email to get to know each other and for the Australian professionals to mentor these young Kenyan’s to success.
