Producing Skillful Nation
TThe majority of African youth continue to face unemployment, underemployment, lack of skills, relevant education, access to capital, and access to health-related information and services. This situation is even more accentuated among youth in rural areas. According to the World Bank, youth accounts for 60% of all Africans unemployed and/or underemployed. More than 70% of Africa’s youth live on less than 2USD per day on average, the internationally defined poverty threshold (African Economic Outlook).
