Our activities are guided by regular impact assessment. The Kabakoo Learning Experience
demonstrates its lifelong impact for our learners by igniting sustainable value creation and delivering future-oriented skills.
We measure success by regularly tracking the progress of our learners and their activities once they left us. In this context, we collaborate with researchers from institutions such as the University of Paderborn in Germany or the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa. 100% of our alumni/ learners would recommend Kabakoo.
By March 2021, the less than 90 learners/alumni enrolled in our 2020 structured programs had already generated value amounting to more than 1200 times the local mandatory monthly minimum wage. This value has been generated by designing and offering products and services responding to local issues in sustainable ways. Some alumni are for example pioneering circular economy while others are turning shea butter, a local raw material, into highly marketable products.
Having embedded futures literacy and the plurality of knowledges in our design principles, the Kabakoo Learning Experience ignites lifelong learning for thriving communities and a sustainable 4th Industrial Revolution. Among the learners of our 2020 batches, the incidence of a growth mindset increased by 105% and learners’ self-confidence increased by 47%. Moreover, 90% of our learners consider that their personal and professional situation has improved as a result of the Kabakoo program.
Recent research shows that the skills delivered by the Kabakoo Learning Experience lead to improved lifetime employment, income outcomes, and communities vitality.
Our highdigenous model allows us to train youths from different educational backgrounds without diploma prerequisites. 22% of our learners didn’t finish high-school.
Already 30% of our learners are women, a significant share for tech-oriented education. We also live gender equity in the Kabakoo community as we work toward gender parity in our cohorts. And since representation is key in women empowerment, we have 40% of female mentors.
