Empowering African youth through education.

Published on 15.08.2019 at 21:32

According to the United Nations, one in ten children around the world currently live in war-torn areas, with close to 25 million currently out of school, without access to any type of training. The gigantic strides and landmarks in technology and digital skill throughout the world of work compound the challenges of the labor market that frustrate the youth, making the terrain very unfamiliar for the less educated.

 

If youth are out of school or unemployed with no access to training, they will be unable to contribute to decision-making processes, which isolate them politically or civically even more: how education touches everything affecting our lives and societies. African Union’s Agenda-2063 aims to close the gaps, by developing human and social capital through education, reinforced by science, technology and innovation.

 

Though, such an ambitious plan can't be realised without addressing Female Genital Mutilation, child marriage, gender-based violence and menstruation, among other forms of violence / discrimination against women. Girls & young women are more likely to drop out of school, forced into marriage, and thus never become financially independent, which prevents them from having a safe and dignified life.

 

There is thus a need to advance an inclusive education with a gender lens, to ensuring a stable Africa, one that is free of conflict and home to proud citizens who are healthy and fully engaged in education and training, to explore knowledge, skills and competences from different experiences; to build a society that is collaborative and emotionally intelligent; and to accelerate human, capital and social development.
