Our partnerships have helped us to transform the lives of thousands of young people and women, and will help us transform the lives of thousands more. Our work is stronger thanks to the partnerships we create between local communities and the public, private, and civil sectors. Our partners provide us with the critical resources, including funding, business and industry knowledge, and the local support we need to reach the most marginalised communities.
STEAM Girls - Gained GenerationLebanon
Young girls are at a higher risk of high-school dropout among marginalised communities, preventing them and their communities from reaching their full economic, social and political potential. DOT Lebanon and partners will work together to support 1,500 Syrian refugees and Lebanese girls aged 12-19 in Lebanon’s Bekaa and Northern regions. Using safe-learning spaces, these girls will be given the practical, hands-on digital skills training, mentorship and coaching they need to pursue careers in the arts, technology and science.

Inspire Back Home ProjectGambia
In July 2022, DOT UK worked with YES Africa, alongside the Rangoonwala Foundation, who over 2 weeks brought communities together from Serrekunda (near the capital Banjul) and Penyem (central to seven villages) for a two week youth engagement program, ‘Inspire Back Home”. The project centered around the critical problem of youth migration to Europe. YES Africa is building on insights from this project to define its work and further understand the digital skills required for technology jobs and the social innovation that will transform communities and grow opportunities for youth.
We are grateful for our partners’ support in helping us create opportunities and transform communities.
