Who We Are.

I'm not idle...
We seek to establish partnership with governments, private sector (individuals, businesses, and NGOs), and international donors to pursue integrated, comprehensive policies and strategies that create jobs for young people and improve the transition between school and work in local communities.The I’M NOT IDLE (INI) approach is based on the recommendations of UNESCO and the International Labour Organization.
Our Strategies are advocacy and intervention programs to reduce “Not in Education, Employment or Training” (NEET) youths; and to improve their skills and employability in local communities via:
  • Advocating for local policies to improve labor standards and social protection for Youths (such as acceptable wages and improved work conditions);
  • Organizing programs for disadvantaged young women and men to boost their skills and employability;
  • Providing second-hand education/training for individuals with low or no foundation skills; and
  • Providing platforms for dialogue to address the mismatch between what youth know and what employers need.

Vision Statement

Every African youths irrespective of location, must be gainfully employed, and the number of “Not in Education, Employment or Training” (NEET) youths must be reduced to the nearest minimum.

Mission Statement

To mobilize dedicated volunteers and partners towards developing intervention programs to reduce the number of“Not in Education, Employment or Training” (NEET) youths; and boost their skills and employability.

Why We Exist!

  • iWORK
  • iTRAIN
Millions of Youths in Africa face risks of slowing progress and/or poverty in terms of jobs quality and productive opportunities.
This results in the worrisome status of Africa as the global poverty capital; and concomitant high prevalence rate of crimes and criminality, including mass murders, insurgency, militancy, armed robbery, kidnappings and drug abuse, among others.
The lack of work affects the mental and psychological wellbeing of a large percentage of Africans. Many young people have given up hope and some have committed suicide, leaving their families devastated.
I’M NOT IDLE (INI) exists to establish partnership with governments, private sector, and international donors; to urgently reverse this trend through dedicated efforts in the local communities.
