iAfrica Foundation, a UK registered charity that implements education, conservation and livelihoods projects in rural and poor communities in Africa launched the ZayoHub programme in 2018. ZayoHub works with communities living in under-served, climate-change affected communities, to create locally-driven sustainable social and economic development.
The solar powered tech-enabled hubs support communities with programmes addressing financial inclusion, sustainable livelihoods, and education for all. These services combine to facilitate multiple social and development outcomes, aligned to Sustainable Development Goal targets. The hubs are managed by local agents, recruited from within the community and serve non-migratory rural communities of between 3,000 and 5,000 population size.
