We believe in a revolution of hope

"Imagine if each young person believed that their life has purpose and value. Most young people in Africa are growing up in communities that offer no hope. If we are to unlock the social and economic potential of the world’s largest and youngest workforce, then we have to address systematic inequality. We have to change the narrative around the youth bulge crisis at the bottom of the pyramid; to see youth as the hope for our continent. There is no plan B.”

Susannah Farr, gold CEO The Programme
