African Union AU and the United Nations UN have launched an innovation programme during the 72nd general assembly that they think will curb youth unemployment in Africa.
The programme will train young people in creative skills and innovations and is also expected to benefit 400,000 youth.
Ms Rosa Malango, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) representative, said the proposed programme scale up model, will aim to connect youth across Africa to their role models, peers, resources, skills, economic opportunities and build on already ongoing innovations in the continent.
“Our hope is that ideas such as these will give youth space to create novel innovations that will enable them to contribute to reducing the youth unemployment challenge in the continent today,” Ms Malango said at the launch of the programme in New York.
“We strongly believe in the power of learning and peer networking. We shall, therefore, ensure that the programme enriches the youth with a lot of information,” Mr Bigirimana said.
He also revealed that the training will be ongoing process which will be in batches and urge all African Youths to make use of the opportunity wisely.
