Africans cough it out NOW- Young and old edition for youth month
May 27, 2022
Welcome to June 2022
June 2, 2022

In light of the 1976 youth, in June we commemorate the Soweto students by having unfiltered conversations with young and old people. Discussing everything impacting the youth from who they are destined to be. We will be having these unfiltered conversations with Africans across the African continent.

Aspiration 6 of Agenda 2063 calls for “An Africa, whose development is people-driven, relying on the potential of African people, especially its women and youth, and caring for children.”

For Africa to emerge stronger young people need to be empowered.

Guest number six is Solomon Kojo Ocansey from Ghana opening our youth month edition.

Tackling: Youth Empowerment in Africa – What does the destiny of young Africans look like?
