About Zwart Academy

Zwart Academy, the educational arm of the Zwart Talent Foundation was established to train African youths with the requisite knowledge to thrive in the global IT industry.

Our goal is to successfully train at least, 2000 students in the next five years. Our dream is that at least 50% of them will go on to find quality employment and the other half will successfully found and grow start-ups that will solve challenges in Africa and the world at large.

Our belief is that by taking away the financial cost to quality education and other limitations to developing their skills, we are helping the African youth to build a better future for themselves and their communities.
