In Africa, Chinese companies generally face the issue of not finding workers with the necessary skillsets. On the other hand, the local unemployment rate among the young is high, as many cannot find a job. Facing this situation, China House assists Chinese companies to design and execute the social corporate responsibility project “Africa Tech Challenge” (ATC). It offers technical training to the African youth to help them become qualified technicians.
The project's impact:
• After the initial conception by China House, the matured competition is now hosted directly by Chinese enterprises. Until today it has been constantly increasing in scale.
• One of the rare corporate social responsibility project of a Chinese state-owned enterprise that matches the global standards.
• Reported by media including CCTV and CGTN.
