Partnering with Niya to close the technology skills gap

Training a global roster of technology experts

Since 2021, we have been a partner of Niya, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) focused on training refugees and matching them with opportunities around the world.


Since inception, our partnership has graduated four technology cohorts by offering access to over 6,000 hours of training and more than 1,500 hours of mentoring.


In 2023, we celebrated the graduation of the participants in the Ukraine Tech Scholarship Programme, initiated as a response to the humanitarian crisis resulting from the Russia-Ukraine military conflict. We provided the 30 participants with learning tools for software development, web development, data analysis and visualisation and Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.


The course lasted four months and the core fundamentals were supplemented with soft skills training across communication, interviewing and résumé writing.


The programme aims to empower participants with in-demand skills to foster their professional growth and help them contribute to rebuilding their communities.

Our partnership with Endava has enabled us not only to provide critical skills development opportunities to over 100 amazingly gifted individuals that have been severely disadvantaged by events outside of their control, but also to gather critical learnings from those beneficiaries. This has led the development of our own machine learning model that can identify and remove barriers to opportunity. We love working with Endava’s amazing team and hope to see the relationship develop and evolve over the coming years.
