”With almost 200 million people aged between 15 and 24, Africa has the youngest population in the world. This number will double by 2045. Many jobs have been created over the last decade, but the pace needs to accelerate significantly to match the demand of Africa's next generations.”

We Invest in the Young
Flock of Birds is an initiative from a team of people experienced in the field of development and business who have bundled their knowledge, resources and expertise to combine business, trade & development and invest in Africa's young generation.
Local job creation - We start small Flock of Birds businesses, do market assessment, employ local youth and produce products that are in demand.
Skills development - A 2-year bridging model connects earning & learning. We build the skills and capacity of these youth and create a diverse and skilled young labour force;
Sustainable local economy development - Small businesses on multiple locations. We create an environment for new product development and create income through sales of the products.
Our flock is an open and flexible structure of collaboration. Our business development process is practical and fast with knowledge of local context. We use existing resources efficiently and our co-creation mindset keeps us open and innovative.
