UNDP Somalia, in collaboration with Microsoft, initiated the Somalia Future Ready project to accelerate the rate of innovative youth entering the high-tech industry and building start-ups. The project increases the technical and entrepreneurial capacity of Somali youths, focusing on coding and programming for the development of mobile applications that can be commercialized. The initiative gives Somali youth hands-on experience in creating new software and applications as well as the opportunity to develop their skills for careers in the digital world. The initiative ultimately aims to inspire them to innovate, share wisdom, and have a voice within the industry.
