iNERDE is a social enterprise with a plan for radical development in Africa. Our STEM Summer Camps 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 goal is to provide African youth the opportunity to discover their potential in STEM fields and every field in the modern world that requires high technical literacy. We aim for nothing less than to give Africa’s youth the tools that they need to turn their deep aspiration for a bright future into reality.

SILICON VALLEY, CA, USA – iNERDE’s African base of operations is in Mali, in West Africa, the region of the world which is the center of the ebola epidemic.
