The primary goal of the DSA Foundation is developing human capital largely through education.
A philosophy of “giving forward” as opposed to “giving back” drives the foundation based on the way to global picture is reshaping itself due to key factors such as population growth, urbanization, climate change, and technological developments.
The United Nations predicts a world population approaching 10 billion by 2050 – at a time when life expectancy is also notably increased. The rapid advancement of Artificial Intelligence and job automation means that finding jobs for people will be a absolute priority.
Recognising this need to train and reskill people to adapt to this changing environment, the DSA Foundation has made it a key mission to base its work around that important goal, while also looking to grow human resources in areas where they are heavily in demand, particularly healthcare.
The current initiatives of the DSA Foundation include education projects in India and water projects in Ethiopia and Kenya.
Being developed is an exciting collaboration with the Kletjian Foundation (Boston, USA) and Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) to build significant nursing capacity in Africa (initially Tanzania) to positively impact health care, specifically in remote regions.
