WorldClass

Globally, and especially in Africa, millions cannot fulfil their aspirations or reach their potential as they are unable to access quality education, skills and training. Through WorldClass, Deloitte supports the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, namely: Goal 4 (Quality Education) Goal 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), and Goal 10 (Reduced Inequalities). Our goal is to impact 20 million lives in Africa by leveraging our capabilities and resources, to empower Africans - one future at a time.

WorldClass Education Challenge

As part of Deloitte’s WorldClass ambition, we launched a joint initiative with the World Economic Forum (WEF), the Uplink WorldClass Education Challenge. The initiative invited educators, entrepreneurs, and innovators to submit solutions that would support access to quality education through investing in teachers, striving for equitable access to education and investing in 4IR focused skills.

The cohort selected receives:

  • Up to US$1 million worth of professional services on a pro bono basis from Deloitte
  • Financial grants
  • A dedicated relationship manager to support the organisation’s collaboration with Deloitte
  • Participation in selected World Economic Forum and Deloitte events, projects and communities
