MAARIBA is an innovative platform established to enable and unlock job opportunities for artisans, craftsmen and women in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Even with a high demand for vocational skills, Artisans and Craftsmen (masons, carpenters, mechanics, electricians, painters, plumbers, welders, tailors, caterers, beauticians, foremen, quantity surveyors, builder contractors, photographers, designers, engineers etc) in sub-Saharan Africa are still struggling to find jobs.
