The Emerging Market Model Initiative (EMMI) is a multi-year, multi-stakeholder private-public-non-profit partnership designed by Microsoft for the purpose of building the capacity of key government MDAs to offer sustainable, scalable reskilling and employment services aligned to the local labour markets. The initiative focuses on providing access to digital skills training (from digital literacy to advanced training) for young people in Nigeria between the ages of 16-35 years
In Nigeria, this project is implemented by Technology for Social Change and Development Initiative (Tech4Dev); a non-profit organization established to empower Af rican communities with digital skills that will bridge the gap of unskilled labour needed for the future of work.
The Emerging Market model will train 36,000 youth over a 1-year period in through a blended learning approach: online and physical through skill training and youth centres across Nigeria.

Pilot State Governments:
