The Leading Africa Scholarship, which will allow you to attend the One Young World Summit 2022, is now open for applications.
The Leading Africa Scholarship is a program that aims to guarantee that Africa’s best young people are represented at the One Young World Summit in Munich in 2020.
Africa has the world’s biggest population of young people, with more than 60% of the population under the age of 25.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution might give a lifeline to this youthful, eager population, with 72 percent of its labor force in “vulnerable” employment and numerous nations facing governance and violent extremist difficulties.
They have the power to revolutionize their regions because to their vast numbers, whether in government, energy, infrastructure, medicine, or other areas.
Young leaders are proposing relevant solutions to construct a more sustainable area in the face of these challenges and possibilities.
