Africa is endowed with sunshine throughout the year, it’s a beautiful continent with 54 independent countries, endowed with all world minerals and special stones, wild life, mountains, lakes and rivers. With a GDP of USD 2.39 Trillion, Africa has a population of 1.1 billion people, 20% of whom are Youth, and the population is expected to grow to 2.4 billion by 2020. Women in Africa are 52% of the population but they earn less than 10% of the GDP. 

The rate of youth unemployment in Africa is over 20%, by the year 2040, Africa will have the world largest workforce superseding China and India. This presents enormous potential if harnessed or a big generation risk. Africa however still grapples with extreme poverty, hunger, preventable diseases, war and a broken democracy.

Uganda’s population is 35 million and projected to grow to 47 million by 2025. Youth (15-60 years) account for 60% of the population, whereas 51% are women. Youth unemployment in Uganda is over 60%.
