The main presenter, Mr. John Makoha, country representative of the AVSI Foundation, said that the theme has come at a time when there has been a more positive trend in employment and yet the youth and unemployment have had serious consequences for Africa. “Africa is generally a youthful population structure close to 400 million people between the ages of 18 to 35 and I am told it’s the youngest population in the world. We have close to 10 – 12 million youth seeking unsuccessfully to enter the workforce”.
This population is expected to double by the year 2040, putting more pressure on the communities, institutions, African governments. Therefore, we need to find a solution for the unemployment of the youth”.
