THE PASSING ON
THE PASSING ON
Mentoring for change
According to UNDP-AFRICA, Africa’s youth population is growing rapidly and is expected to reach over 830 million by 2050. This presents a big opportunity for African development because it provides a large labor force. However, failure to provide quality education and employment opportunities to the youth may rob the continent of this potential and result in the increase of violence, robbery and terrorism. According to the World Bank, 40% of people who join rebel movements are motivated. Afflatus Africa has initiated the Passing On program to address this challenge by promoting learning, creating career guidance, and professional development through our soft skill training programs.
