Verein Change the World Schweiz is a small, dynamic Non-profit focusing on technology training for youth and other innovative educational projects in South Africa and Mozambique.

The Computer Training Academy in Maputo, Mozambique was launched by Change the World in April 2011 to provide training and employment opportunities to underprivileged youth. It is located in a neighborhood called Magoanine, just outside of Maputo and serves young people between the ages of 14-24 years old by offering quality, basic IT Training free of charge.

The center has been a raving success since its launch and as of December 2012, less than two years, over 330 youth have completed training there.

Each young person leaves the center with confidence, skills and a vision to achieve more with their lives.
