Microsoft believes that there are many people in Africa with a great idea for an app but who simply don’t have the development time or resource to get it built..

With an intention to help bridge that gap, two AppFactories have been set up in South Africa and Egypt. At full capacity, these will be staffed by 30 paid interns. The internships are designed as a 9-12 month engagements, however they’re also designed to create a roadmap to employment.. 

The 4Afrika Initiative focuses on three critical areas of development for the continent – World-class skills, Access and Innovation.

Each of these focuses on different aspects that will help empower African youth, entrepreneurs, developers and business and civic leaders to turn great ideas into a reality that can help their community, their country, the continent, and beyond.

Internship Program provides a world-class job training experience to qualified students in our Microsoft Africa locations. The primary goal is to promote employability by providing a unique job experience to hundreds of qualified graduates per year, enabling them to land jobs within Microsoft and our broader partner ecosystem in Africa. The program has two intakes per year and kicks off with a one-week on-boarding and orientation event in our South African office. This includes a signature team building activity to get the interns energized for the intense year ahead.
