Join the Journey with AfriKo!
If you have ever wondered about being part of a unicorn team, AfriKo might be the right choice for you.
In startup world, ‘unicorn’ is a company valued at over $1 billion. We like to think of AfriKo as a non-profit unicorn - though we haven’t reached that value yet, the organization is growing exponentially. We are a research and consultancy centre busy making and analysing unexpected connections between Lithuania and African countries.
Our most recent achievement - Digital Explorers initiative - facilitates relations between Lithuanian and Nigerian ICT sectors. The EU’s funded pilot sets a stage for creating career enhancement opportunities for Nigerian tech developers through work placement in Lithuanian ICT companies.
❖ Possibility to be a part of making unexpected connection between Lithuania and Nigeria via Digital Explorers programme
❖ Sincere interest in making you part of our team not only for a short period, but also in the long run
❖ Freedom for creativity and possibility to take more responsibilities once you feel ready
❖ Access to interesting bunch of people we work with both in Lithuania and countries across the globe
We expect that you:
❖ Know that Africa is not a country... and a little bit beyond
❖ Have slightly disruptive mindset and are not interested in working on mainstream development projects
❖ Don’t want to save Africa, but instead develop new ideas on how to engage with people (not animals) from
some of the countries in this huge continent
❖ Have great communication skills and consider yourself a problem solver
Lukas Ivanauskas, Head of Research Department at AfriKo: AfriKo is a stage for creative and passionate individuals who are problem solvers instead of passive observers. What I value the most about my internship at AfriKo is a real chance to make a difference and transform my aspirations into reality.
WE KINDLY INFORM THAT ONLY THOSE APPLICANTS WHO COULD PHISICALLY BE IN LITHUANIA FOR AT LEAST 3 MONTHS WILL BE CONSIDERED.
