AfDB to tackle Africa’s climbing youth unemployment rate

first_img“If we fix the youth unemployment challenge, Africa will gain 10-20% annual growth,” says AfDB President Akinwumi Adesina. The African Development Bank (AfDB) Group intends to create 25 million jobs to benefit 50 million youth over the next 10 years through skills development.This vision will be implemented through the Presidential Youth Advisory Group (PYAG) that was inaugurated on the side-lines of the 6th EU-Africa Business Forum in Abidjan on Monday.PYAG comprises nine members under the age of 40 who have made significant contributions to the creation of employment opportunities for African youth.#Selfie time: members of new Presidential Youth Advisory Group pose with @akin_adesina. These young successful leaders and #entrepreneurs will work with #AfDB to equip African youth with the right skills to get decent and meaningful jobs. https://t.co/h2rioSoTSg #Jobs4Youth pic.twitter.com/0LMDyhxKNj— AfDB_Group (@AfDB_Group) November 29, 2017The PYAG members in no particular order are: Ashish Thakkar, CEO, Mara Group, Uganda (Chair); Uzodinma Iweala, award-winning author, Nigeria; Mamadou Touré, Founder / CEO, Africa 2.0 / Ubuntu Capital, Cameroon; Vanessa Moungar, Director Gender Women and Civil Society Department, Chad ; Francine Muyumba, President, Panafrican Youth Union, Democratic Republic of Congo; Jeremy Johnson, Co-founder, Andela, USA; Clarisse Iribagiza, CEO, Hehe, Rwanda; Ada Osakwe, CEO, Agrolay Ventures, Nigeria; and Monica Musonda, CEO of Java Foods, Zambia.“This is a huge opportunity for Africa. If we fix the youth unemployment challenge, Africa will gain 10-20% annual growth. That means Africa’s GDP will grow by $500 billion per year for the next 30 years. Africa’s per capita income will rise by 55% every year to the year 2050,” said Adesina.Youth unemployment rateAdesina remarked that out of the 13 million youths that enter the labour market each year, only 3 million (about 33% of African youth) are in wage employment, while the rest are underemployed or in vulnerable employment.The annual gap of more than 8 million jobs is projected to get worse, with the number of youth expected to double to more than 800 million in the next decade.“Africa has an unemployment crisis among its youth,” he stressed, noting that unless employment opportunities are created for them, Africa’s rapidly growing population of youths can give rise to serious social, economic, political and security challenges.“Sixty-six million African youths earn less than $2 a day, less than the price of a hamburger,” the Bank President emphasised.“Sixty-six million is 8 times the population of Switzerland, 6 times the population of Belgium, the same as that of the UK, France or Italy, and 80% of Germany’s population,” he added.

And don’t get me started on purple/silver/black.

Sports Minister Dare Announces Talent Hunt Program To Discover Young Talented Athletes

first_imgMinister of Youth and Sports Development Sunday Dare wants to set up a Talent Hunt Program to identify and nurture talented youngsters after coming across videos of two young female boxers on Twitter.Dare made this known via his Twitter handle on Saturday in what appeared to be a decision taken on the spur of the moment adding that he had been “inspired” by the video of the 8-year old boxers he’d seen.The minister requested the name and contact details of 8-year old Raimoh Animashaun, and her dad Jamiu who also doubles as her coach after coming across a video of the aspiring boxer in training.I need the name of the little girl and the number of the coach. Another budding talent. I am inspired to lead the ministry to crank up a Talent Hunt Program. THP that will pick up these young ones and nurture them. https://t.co/rbeDLgX4gr— Sunday Dare (@SundayDareSD) November 9, 2019“I need the name of the little girl and the number of the coach.

THP that will pick up these young ones and nurture them,” Dare tweeted after watching the video.Prior to that tweet, Dare had confirmed that he’d gotten in touch with yet another 8-year-old budding boxer Shekinah, her father Quadri and coach Sulaiman with a view to “adopting” her after coming across a video of her impressive training routine on Twitter.“The video of 8-year old Shekinah. Amazing stuff. Brilliant boxing Talent. The gold is in the Child. I spoke with her father Quadri in Lagos this morning and her Coach Sulaiman ‘energy’ to find out about her. We will follow her and get her adopted,” Dare tweeted.pic.twitter.com/dMRjjCh5i5 The video of 8-year old Shekinah. Amazing stuff. Brilliant boxing Talent. The gold is in the Child.

This afternoon, I visited the batch C, stream 1 Youth Corp members at the keffi camp . I inspected the parade and camp facilities.
