Blackout’s mission is to empower African youth to create a path out of poverty for themselves and for their communities by sharing funding and scholarship opportunities for those who want to pursue higher education.

We see a better Africa where everyone can readily access the opportunities they need.

What we do

  • We actively promote educational equity in Africa by sharing and providing opportunities that will make the advantages of education available to all.

  • We raise awareness on the issues impacting youth mental health. Blackout shares a list of mental health services in Botswana, South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and Oxford.

  • Blackout supports activism through poetry, blogs and YouTube videos. These address contemporary issues such as mental health, gender based violence and racism. Please get in touch if you'd like to contribute.
