Agenda 2063 is the strategic framework for socio-economic transformation of the African continent over the next 45 years. Aspiration 6 of the AU Agenda 2063 speaks of an “Africa where development is people driven, unleashing the potential of its women and youth”. Young Africans, women and men will be the pioneers of the African knowledge society that will contribute significantly to innovation and entrepreneurship. The creativity, energy and innovation of African youth will be the driving force behind the continent’s political, social, cultural and economic transformation. Youths do not only play a critical role in the socio-economic development of Africa, but will also be the beneficiaries of Agenda 2063.
