Maxim Nyansa

Our name means “maximal wisdom” and our logo – a classic Ghanaian Adinkra symbol - literally means “climbing the good tree”. This expression means: “He who works for a good cause may expect the help of others”. It reflects our mission, which is to give young Africans who are less fortunate a chance to be educated and equipped for their professional live.

Mission

We are an NGO with the mission to create a career perspective for young Africans with the help of IT.
We do this by:

1. Establishing training centers in African big cities where young African graduates from an underprivileged background are equipped to become IT professionals
2. Providing open source educational software solutions to African high schools and families. 
3. Providing integrated IT projects for high schools.

Maxim Nyansa stands for the best of two worlds. We have the strength of an NGO and we are a foundation raising funds and mobilizing volunteers to train underprivileged young Africans. We believe in a bicultural approach and our organization will be owned, governed and executed by teams where Europeans and Africans are working together on a basis of equality and synergy.
