Leapfrog e.V. is an internationally working, non-governmental and non-profit organisation with its seat in Berlin Germany.

We aim for contributing to close the digital gap between the global South and the global North by technically and financially supporting IT education in the global south with a focus on Africa.

In close cooperation with our local partners, we strive for empowering young people to take their lives into their own hands. That’s why we chose the name “Leapfrog” – a children’s game where one child jumps over the other. We want to support young people to master the way on theirs own.

Leapfrog e.V. is member of Berliner Entwicklungspolitischer Ratschlag (BER), the regional network of NGOs working in the field of development aid in Berlin and “The African Network of Germany” (TANG) 

Leapfrog is CISCO Networking Academy and is currently preparing enrollment of the Networking Academy programme in Kenya.

We thank our partners Stiftung Nord-Süd-Brücken and Stiftung Umverteilen for their continous financial support to our projects and Betterplace for supporting our fundraising.
