University enrollment rates in Sub-Saharan Africa are among the lowest, averaging about 5%. Those individuals who manage to get college or other higher education have very few job prospects awaiting them when they graduate. Added to this is a lack of career guidance in most institutions, which leaves many students unprepared to compete in the job market.
To meet this challenge, ASSET brings together past, present and prospective beneficiaries at an annual event called the ASSET Leadership Symposium to discuss ways to achieve academic and career success.
