Unlocking Opportunities Through Education
The Africa Roundtable — The Podcast: Unlocking Opportunities Through Education
November 22, 2023
With one-fifth of the global population under 25 residing in sub-Saharan Africa, the continent is the world’s youngest region. But unemployment rates loom large, particularly among the youth. Education, Skills, and Leadership are crucial in creating a path to success for Africa’s young people.
In this edition of The Africa Roundtable Podcast we are joined by Taha Bawa, Co-founder and CEO of Goodwall, a social enterprise which connects youth to opportunities for skilling, working and social impact. He explains why he thinks that building skills is key to empowering young people on the continent and to helping them build their future careers.
Taha Bawa shared his perspective in the fifth edition of The Africa Roundtable “The Path to Success: Education, Skills, and Leadership” in Berlin. The participants discussed what is required to achieve an optimal alignment between the skills of the workforce and the demands of the labor market – shining spotlights on future markets, digitalization and professions in the green sector.
