OUR STORY

DEVELOPING COUNTRIES > Millions of jobs – Mile long interview lines – Millions still jobless – Unemployment high, yet organizations reporting difficulty filling key positions.. Why?? Problem for employers is not the number of candidates, but a talent mismatch! There are not enough skilled people with the market-driven technical training available in the right place at the right time!

Employers skeptical about young people’s abilities to apply the skills they learn in schools to the practical challenges of the workplace. This, plus lack of expert instructors, redundant teaching methods and institutions that are too often detached from what’s really required in the workplace — churning out “underprepared degree holders” without the relevant job skills as dictated by needs of the labor market.

THE PROBLEM IS NOT UNEMPLOYMENT BUT UNEMPLOYABILITY !

HOW WE DID IT

Sending thousands of expert instructors to each disadvantaged community in hundreds of countries is not possible nor practical. So we partnered with the world’s leading E-Learning content provider to offer a massive discount on over 3000 of their highest quality courses that cover Business, information technology, desktop and mission critical in-demand certifications.

These very same courses are being used by Ivy League universities like MIT, Cornel, Columbia, Wharton, Harvard, etc. which just goes to show you the high quality of the content. How do students get them for FREE? The same course that is commercially sold @ US$ 99 to US$ 540 EACH is now available for the G77 developing countries at just US$10/- each – ONLY under ICWFD’s eskills360° initiative ). Each course / student is then sponsored by benevolent people like you and socially responsible companies. ICWFD has developed a unique mechanism where instead of a credit card the courses can now be accessed from anywhere via a special code that can be emailed, sent via SMS with the donors message or printed on co-branded gift/scratch cards which lend themselves very well to self-promotion by public & private donors. The scratch cards are branded with an organization’s logo and message and distributed FREE to the masses under a high profile CSR or workforce development initiative. Simultaneous access to millions of students is possible through the unique access and dissemination method. See how
