A nation’s workforce is its lifeguard, so this paper validates. In the midst of rising growth in Africa, calls for technological development, infrastructure, and ultimately, the consciousness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This paper could not have come at a better time.
The authors sought to prove that investing in Africans is paramount to sustaining the growth of Africa and also that sustainable job creation, investments in infrastructural skills development, improved education, and producing more youths in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) sectors will get more Africans relevant and involved in the development of the continent.
With a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa, this publication pinpoints the situation of education in the region while highlighting efforts of the featured countries at improving their education system in preparation for sustained growth. The publisher seized the opportunity to showcase the efforts of GE at improving the health and locomotive sectors in Africa through Africa’s workforce, and concludes by calling on all stakeholders to action.
This is a book that gets all stakeholders; African governments, private organizations, the civil society, general public, and even foreign investors thinking about how to deposit all they can into Africans whom ultimately determine the growth and future of the continent.
