Life by Design receives computers

15.12.16

The third and final part of the computer project took place this morning when Aurora donated five computers to Life by Design. Life by Design is a Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Freetown. Their work is mainly twofold. First, to support young entrepreneurs taking their first steps in setting up their own companies. The Centre supports them for 3-6 months in developing their business plan, and offers guidance on how to structure their companies and research their respective field. The second aspect is to support young people in their career development, e.g. prepare them for applying for jobs and how to write CVs. The computers will enable Life by Design to allow young people to do their work and research in-house with the direct support of the Centre’s personnel.
