Women, children and the youth are the most vulnerable in society. According to Stats SA in August 2021 "the official unemployment rate is at a record of 34.4%, or 7.8 million jobless people. Trends show that unemployment is concentrated among the youth and the black African population. The labour market is also more favourable to men than women". The global marginalization of women is unheard of. We want to tell a different story that is liberating Afrika and Africans on the continent.
