Human Capital Development

Africa is often described as the world’s youngest continent and indeed 220 million Africans are between 15 and 25 and are expected to be around 350 million by 2030. Africa’s burgeoning youth population represents the continent’s greatest asset and will determine the development trajectory of Africa over the next decades. The programme aims to accelerate and diversify economic transformation in rural areas. It also focuses on enhancing the employment prospects of youth in marginalised communities to join the mainstream and ensure their contribution towards a prosperous continent.
