The WildTech-FTP program connects USA youth with African youth over the internet, who jointly create international fair trade businesses importing and selling African crafts and exporting USA technology to needy African schools. The program even includes the optional element of USA youth flying to Africa to work side-by-side with their “business partners” during two weeks in the summer. The program empowers youth to create new generations of businesses based on leveraging differential resources and international trade.
The White House is now collaborating with the WTA to position the program as a key STEM initiative in USA schools through its “My Brothers Keeper” initiative, The WTA has also partnered with a Washington DC area school to develop the curriculum. Pilot projects are currently projected for Detroit, Spokane and Washington DC schools.
