inHive seeks to connect young school-age students with one of their biggest resources: past alumni. This will be done through establishing effective networks with teachers as well as students. Past students can play a key role in shaping school-aged children’s motivations and aspirations. They can be supportive as advisors to facilitate transitions into work, mentors to boost confidence, self-worth and encourage students to stay in school, donors to increase school funds, and classroom tutors and assistants.
InHive models are rooted in a belief that the communities facing challenges are the best problem solvers, and the more that we can champion and strengthen a locally led approach to recovery, resilience and rebuilding, the more sustainable those ideas will be long after ideation. Their specific expertise and methodology are in alumni networks in low-resource contexts.
Their Vision For The Future
inHive is working towards a future where a young person’s life is no longer determined merely by their parents’ economic and social status. These alumni networks will enable students to build a better future for themselves, as they can both relate and look up to the former students.
