In every learning exchange E-Motive works with a challenge. This is an urgent local issue that needs innovative solutions. E-Motive searches for the best practices in contexts and countries with similar local issues. Through an international exchange these solutions are tested and translated to new contexts, turning them into radical innovations.
The current challenge is to create job opportunities for young people by setting up rural Hubs in Bangladesh and Pakistan.
A rural Hub is a place, located in rural districts, to support young people in finding a job. It is a creative working space with an internet infrastructure and joined services. A rural Hub promotes and stimulates the growth of an entrepreneurship community to set up enterprises, get funds, create jobs and generate substantial change. Currently, Hubs are often set in urban areas. To create Hubs in rural areas is a new and radical innovation.
Two ways in which a rural Hub supports:
- Preparing youngsters for employment in existing companies. The rural Hub provides skill trainings, internships, career events, internet service and CV reviews.
- Encouraging youngsters to be an entrepreneur. The rural Hub provides entrepreneurship trainings, incubation & coaching, pitching & network events and matching to investors.
