About

Africa is on the move: The continent has some of the fastest growing economies in the world and is beginning to shape a new future with a growing adolescent population. In sub-Saharan Africa, approximately 50 per cent of the population is under the age of 18, and by 2050, the child population is projected to increase by two thirds to reach 940 million. This presents a unique opportunity to leverage the skills, resources and capacities of millions of children and adolescents, and support even greater progress and new growth opportunities for them and the societies in which they live.
