The eJobsAfrica Story
The idea of training African youth to participate in the gig economy was birthed in Ghana over a decade ago, though at the time there wasn’t adequate infrastructure to support initial efforts.
A decade later, things have changed – and for the better!
With the current spate of the digital revolution and the increasing popularity of remote work amid a global pandemic, there is no better time to launch this decade-long dream. In the words of Victor Hugo, “There is nothing like an idea whose time has come.”
“If we upskill unemployed African college graduates with digital skills for remote work…
... and approach business owners and solopreneurs interested in the development of Africa to outsource their digital work…
…can we provide reliable and dignified work to the graduates, while at the same time giving the business owner 50-100% more value than they would have gained from a typical freelance site?”

Hubs are located in Accra, Ghana; Lagos, Nigeria; Cape Town, South Africa; and Nairobi, Kenya.
In partnership with the Mastercard Foundation and their Young Africa Works strategy, MEST started the Pre-MEST program, an early-stage training program designed to give young Ghanaians the expertise needed to take their business acumen and technology skills to the next level, and prepare them for future entrepreneurship and employment opportunities. Following Whizzy Academy's partnership with MEST, the Pre-MEST program now serves as one of eJobsAfrica' key talent pipelines, where VA's are recruited from.
