A rapidly changing world

With about 200 million people aged between 15 and 24, Africa has the largest population of young people in the world. However, according to the World Bank, youths also make up 60% of all of Africa’s jobless.

It is clear that our young generation face a rapidly changing world. And with that, many challenges in finding work opportunities. One of our top priorities is to put the basic building blocks in place to ensure that young Africans can reimagine their futures and bring their possibility to life.
