According to data from the World Economic Forum, the world’s youngest countries are all in Africa. Such a large number of young people presents both a challenge and opportunity for the continent.
While the population of the rest of the world is shrinking, Africa's young population is booming.Nearly 60 percent of Africans are under the age of 25.
For African nations and economies to unlock productivity and innovation, they need to invest in young people’s health and education in order to cut poverty, create opportunities, and generate prosperity. Human capital is not a magic bullet, but it has played a pivotal role in the success of emerging economies around the world.
With the incredible population of youth, Africa's future looks promising. AFFI's role is very crucial in providing a community that works, guides, encourages and helps the younger generations to create, launch and scale their businesses.
By providing training, mentorship, access to networks, funds, among others, AFFI will help improve Africa's Female Youth opportunities, and in return, help build and influence the continent's economic power.
