Ikatu is an emerging nonprofit organization attempting to create employment opportunities for the world’s youth population. We are seeking to identify gaps within current youth employment programs, strategically model and implement solutions that leverage our blended value experience (economic, social, and environmental), and create significant impact measurements that drive dialogue on transparency and accountability.
Ikatu is Guarani for “Yes I Can”, a translation that speaks to both our organization and the belief system we hope to implant in those we provide programming for, donors we invigorate, and the supporting cast vital to our success. We would like to inspire independent living, personal dignity, realized opportunity, and leadership within young adults who have been underexposed by circumstance. Giving back to the community through smart business can stimulate positive change regardless of economic, political, religious and social context.
At Ikatu, we believe in endless possibilities and the power of “Yes I Can”.
