The Pan-African Youth Empowerment Conference, jointly organised by SOS Children’s Villages International and the African Union seeks to contribute to the realization of SOS Children’s Villages International Strategy 2030, Sustainable Development Goals Agenda 2030 and African Union Agenda 2063 by providing an opportunity for young people to explore opportunities for job creation, entrepreneurship and self-reliance, and for them to be effective contributors to their communities and national development, as well as to be competitive at global level.
Convening with the theme: Youth Empowerment for Employability and Entrepreneurship; the conference brings together young people from 47 African countries to lead the process of formulating a roadmap that seeks to foster youth employability and entrepreneurship on the continent.
Corporates and Development Agencies will also take part to exchange with young people to create synergy and bridge the gap.
