Education has been and continues to be the catalyst for social and economic empowerment in communities. It is a fundamental right of an individual and a necessity for any country to develop and thrive. It is therefore, our responsibility to build human capital and upskill our youth in preparation of the rapidly evolving digital and new economy. ILTIZAM’s education pillar specifically looks to cater to individuals through a clear and structured path comprising the following:
