Stanley Black & Decker Global Impact Challenge
WorldSkills is a recipient of the inaugural Impact Challenge grant from Stanley Black & Decker to support skills development in Africa.
Skills development in Africa is one of the strategic priorities of WorldSkills. The goal is to empower and inspire African youth to pursue personal and economic fulfilment through skills.
WorldSkills Global Premium Partner, Stanley Black & Decker, is supporting WorldSkills Capacity Building Programmes in Africa, as part of their first Empower Makers Global Impact Challenge, a grant programme to fund skills training in the construction and manufacturing sectors.
This initiative, developed in collaboration with the African Union and Don Bosco Tech Africa, will initially focus on developing trainers in Uganda, providing them with access to WorldSkills global training standards.
The aim is to support training which is responsive to the labour market, bring the quality of training closer to global standards, and eventually, close the skills gap.
