  • Donation on our platform is split into three categories:

    2, Recurring Donation: This is achieved through the live campaign platform, an individual apprentice or a skill center can raise a maximum of 500 USD to cover monthly, quarterly, or annual recurring expenses.

    3, IYDN TEP impact fund donation: This fund shall be used to empower youths in our skills acquisition centers network with startup capital, it will work as a revolving fund.


    The startup capital shall be signed by the recipient and their guarantor whom can be a family member for a period of 30 months with a grace period of 5 months. The fund will be issued at single digit interest rate which will be cashed back to the entrepreneur at the end of the repayment cycle. This approach works well in the society we serve because base on our experience majority don’t actually invest business grants into their business instead it’s seen as free money and can be used to solve other pressing needs. The revolving grant method will make it possible for IYDN to help as many youths as possible within our network.


    Each qualified apprentice will receive equipment, first year rent, and other startup needs.Also IYDN, through the impact fund, shall empower the local skills acquisition centers with equipment and Reformed curricula that are innovative enough to meet current and evolving labour demands.
