According to African Development Bank, Africa has 420 million youth between 15-35 years; 50% are not contributing to the economy and of the 50% contributing to the economy, 35% are vulnerable. That means only 15% are effectively contributing to the economy. AfDB (2015).
At GAIN, we reach about a million youths through our online and physical programs annually. Our 5 year target is to empower 60% of this figure to start contributing to the economies of their various countries.
Let’s work together to accomplish this target.
