Learning Lions is a non‐profit program that selects, educates and trains young adults living outside urban areas with few job opportunities in high‐value skills like software development, graphic design and media production. It is focused on hands‐on skills taught by volunteers from around the world that can immediately be used to generate income online. Our follow up program Startup Lions (www.startuplions.org) then helps our trained "Lions" to use the skills they acquired in the training to create their own business in our lakeside IT‐Hub, while we source clients for them from around the world.
