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.
Our mission is to empower young people through skills training and entrepreneurship.
Young Africa was founded in the Netherlands in 1998. We are a confederation of independently and locally registered affiliated organisations. Each affiliate runs skills centres, youth (self-) employment programmes and community activities in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. The founding organisation of Young Africa is Young Africa International, based in the Netherlands.
