  1. ChaPPta uses technology to capture learning, achievements at high school, sporting activities, volunteer work through various NGOs and behaviors. Each child will create a digital profile which when updated will assist them in finding employment easier and/or continue studying what is suggested is a good choice. These records should be rewarded through digital badges. 


Explain your idea

Chappta is an online platform. All learners create and update their success and journey. A digital resume. Think Facebook vs LinkedIn for high school learners.

Access to online learning
Access to volunteer opportunities
Access to intern and workplace experience

All this aids their ability to find employment or bursaries to study further

Employers register and can load opportunities, search and select kids for opportunities

Non profits can load volunteer opportunities

The platform drives positive change and has potential to make huge impact for both child, parent, school and employer and reduce unemployment

Who Benefits?

Unemployed youth
Current high school learners
All youth
Employers who offer entry level employment
Online learning schools
Non profits who get exposure to the great work they do

They can track their success, experiences, internships, jobs and learning digitally

Their profile becomes and online resume which can be verified by various stake holders
