Announcing the launch of a new 360° on youth employment in Africa, in partnership with Ashoka.
Around the world, communities with the brightest futures create innovative opportunities for youth to build sustainable livelihoods, pursue meaningful careers, and shape better realities for themselves and for those around them. Unfortunately, in many communities within sub-Saharan Africa, youth find themselves jobless and entrenched in systems that do not welcome innovation or change.
Future Forward, a partnership between Ashoka and the MasterCard Foundation, is identifying and supporting the innovators in Africa who are changing these systems, while convening a conversation to reframe how we think about work and the evolving workplace based on ideas and solutions at the cutting-edge.
In partnership with Ashoka’s Future Forward initiative, which is finding Innovations for Youth Employment in Africa, Fair Observer explores the theme: Who is responsible for addressing youth employment in Africa? From June to September 2014, we will be developing online events and a series of articles that will gather multiple perspectives and provide a 360° analysis on the topic.
