    The importance of youth empowerment in Africa

    The importance of youth empowerment in Africa

    In today’s show we look at the importance of youth empowerment in Africa. An alarmingly large number of young Africans are dis-empowered and unemployed. We usually look to governments to solve the problem but what can we do to economically empower the youth of the continent, especially since we are the youngest continent on the planet. This is discussed with Ntsiki Khunju and Makhoape Letsie from Afrika Tikkun. We then have a look at organizations that are available for youth to receive mentorship and training as well as get skills to develop them as entrepreneurs. A more interview with Ntsiki and Makhoape helps us understand more about Afrika Tikkun and the work that they do in youth development from cradle to career.

    Finally the rumor doing the rounds in the 21st century is that we are all being replaced by machines and will end up all jobless but have we taken the time to look at jobs that are actually being created because of technology? We take a look at the jobs that didn’t even exist 10 years ago and how young people can capitalize on this.
