In 2012, three years after opening, Akilah celebrated the inaugural graduation and met our goal of 100% job placement for graduates. Akilah is committed to connecting all of our students to the formal economy.
This model of affordable higher education and practical training incorporates two crucial elements: market-relevant curricula and professional development programs that connect graduates directly to the workforce. Through this results-oriented educational model, Akilah will achieve its vision of building future generations of women leaders and professionals across East Africa.
All students take three courses in Leadership & Ethics as part of their core curriculum, and complete community service in their villages. The Akilah model of specially tailored curricula, operating systems, academic culture and values will be replicated in East Africa partner countries beginning this year!
Invest in the women who will lead East Africa into the future!
