Youth

We offer an innovative, high impact solution to youth unemployment. Africa has the largest population of young people in the world. Half of them are under thirty five years old of which two thirds don’t have a fixed job. We are determined to change that. We believe we can train 500.000 youth by 2025.

During my training I stay in Young Africa’s hostel. The girls I live with became my sisters. We are one big family. We do everything together. We cook, dance and play games. Here I forget the troubles I have at home. I can be young again.

After studying at Young Africa I have gained an interest in business studies. Apart from the studying and skills of the hand, we also gained life skills. This has been very good for me. I have realised the value of working hard to be successful.
