iNERDE’s Vision

iNERDE is a social enterprise with a plan for radical development in Africa. Our Summer Camps and enrichment programs teach African youth problem-solving, innovation, entrepreneurship, integrity, self-confidence, teamwork and, of course, the STEM skills needed to succeed in the modern world.


iNERDE’s Solution

iNERDE’s goal is to provide African youth the opportunity to discover their potential through education, preparing them for success in any modern field that requires high technical literacy. We aim for nothing less than to give Africa’s youth the tools they need to turn their deep aspiration for a bright future into reality.
