Youth empowerment & transformation

Africa has the youngest population in the world, and about 70% of sub-Saharan Africa is under the age of 30. This young population presents high potential for socio-economic transformation. However it will take strategic focus on youth empowerment to realize the potential they hold for the continent.

Without properly managing the continent’s young population and being deliberate about harnessing their potential towards development initiatives, relevant challenges could escalate into crises for majority of African countries.

FASTWIT partners with government departments, civil society organizations as well as private sector players that aim to tap the potential of youths and enhance their contribution to the development of Africa.
