Connecting Dots Services (CODOTS) is a for-profit social enterprise which aims at creating platforms through a collaborative approach for ensuring sustainable youth development and youth-led development. We promote strong participation by youth and related stakeholders with focus on Education, Employment, Health and Entrepreneurship.
We connect youth through a model of collaboration with the private sector, NGOs, community-based organizations, voluntary organizations, policymakers and experts in the field. Often, the economic problem of society is not merely a problem of how to allocate given resources. It is a problem of the utilization of knowledge not given to anyone in its totality (Heyen, 1945). And so, CODOTS believes in competing for connectivity for better impact in society.
- Strong Human relationships
- Freedom of choices
