THE CHALLENGE

Unemployment among the youth is a great challenge to not only African countries but globally. Every year, youth graduate from high institutions only to join their counterparts in job seeking.

One of the greatest challenge for the youth is the lack of capital, meaningful contacts and business skills. In rural areas especially, better education in agriculture and new technologies would help address the skills mismatch.

That is why SCAFRICA trains youth in practical business skills and ethics and supports them with starting up their enterprises. We train, mentor and offer practical start up support through youth farms.

We focus on young people between the ages of 18-35 because young people frequently lack the resources to start up their own business. Young people already make up as much as 40% of the world’s total unemployed. In Africa, 60% of the unemployed are between 15 to 24 years.

Your support can help SCAFRICA unlock young people’s potential and turn job seekers into job creators.
