The Toucan Project supports students to build better lives through access to education, vocational training and internship opportunities. The students we support will come from disadvantaged backgrounds, and they will be known as Toucan Fellows.
The Toucan Project will work alongside our ecosystem of trusted partners to embolden and give access to higher education to girls, refugees and to give the #nextgen of global leaders of the future a voice.
The Toucan Project helps young people move back into education and onto gainful employment and fulfilling careers. We support partners who deliver on the transition from NEET to education, employment and fulfilling careers.
Changing one young person’s life has a very positive impact on their families, friends and community. The next generation leaders who start a business create jobs in the community, create a Halo Effect that permeates society, radiating outwards.
To maximise the socio-economic benefits of the Halo Effect, The Toucan Project will ensure mentorship support/life coaching when young people join their respective programmes.
We will provide support and engagement whilst on the programme and follow-up upon completion of programmes and continue connecting and convening through our staff and partners.
Students supported will come from disadvantaged backgrounds and also have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields. They will be known as Toucan Fellows.
The Toucan Project will work through a partnership model, providing grants to trusted partners with excellent reputations. Partners will identify students meeting eligibility criteria and will be selected and supported jointly by The Toucan Project and our partners.
Our partners are all mission aligned to deliver programmes to the very highest standard, leveraging their networks of partners and digital presence to advance our collective goals.
The Toucan Project works alongside an ecosystem of trusted partners to embolden and give access to higher education to girls, displaced individuals and to give the #nextgen of global leaders of the future a voice.
Our Culture is People First
Every single person that embarks upon one of our programmes will become a Toucan Fellow.
The Toucan Project will provide Toucan Fellows access to opportunities within their ecosystem of partners – including educational opportunities, volunteer opportunities and professional opportunities such as internships, graduate training programmes and/or paid employment.
