Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya

During the recent African Union-European Union Summit held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, the Kenyan President spoke passionately about the need for the two continents to work together to empower the African youth. He said:

“Investing in young people is not just the right thing to do; it is the smart thing to do. We must not only aim at creating jobs for the youth but also and more importantly, in building their capacities with appropriate skills, expertise and attitudes that will enable them to make positive contributions. It is our firm belief that empowering these population segments is a critical part of harnessing a demographic dividend for long-term economic transformation.”
