Alchemy World Schools & Entrepreneurship Centers (AWSEC)

Providing affordable educational opportunities to low income youth. We offer courses in Entrepreneurship and Business Management and teach the skills required to begin a successful career or start a business, which in turn creates jobs.

Our programs have benefited many young people ages 16 to 22 from the poorest communities in Ethiopia, and enabled them to receive a scholarship to study at our AWSECs. The students go on to learn the foundational skills and tools to start and run a profitable business. We offer courses in Marketing, Accounting, and Management. Students also learn IT skills needed to use standard computer softwares. Their studies and hard work while at AWSEC culminates in the preparation and writing of a comprehensive, real world Business Plan for the particular business they plan on starting.

AWSEC'ers graduate within 8 months to 2 years, depending on the given program. They continually receive mentorship all along the way, even after they leave our programs. We have partnered with local governments to provide our graduates with a grant for seed money to invest in their businesses.

MILESTONES & ACHIEVEMENTS

Social Enterpreneurship

Alchemy World Projects is a non-profit social enterprise that builds schools and creates curriculums for low-income and at risk youth from the most underprivileged communities in Ethiopia to help them start their own small businesses and escape poverty.

We are now in our 10th year! We've come a long way, and yet.. still so much more to go! 

From Zero to CEO!

The vast majority of our AWSEC students come from the most impoverished communities in their respective areas, and many begin with nothing but an idea and hope. After graduation, our AWSEC'ers go on to launch their own startup companies and small businesses, which then employ others in their community and then a ripple effect takes place. 

Each cycle we complete allows us to send out yet another group of amazing young people who become the next CEOs to go and take over the world!

Graduations

We are proud to announce:

We have graduated over 3500 students from within our network of AWSECs since our inception in 2008. 

Meet some of our AWSEC grads here, they are all truly brilliant!
