Shortly after I started my current role two years ago, I wrote an article on how I landed my dream job for She Leads Africa‘s platform. I was completely floored by the positive response the article garnered. I received countless emails from young people all over the world looking for advice on how they too could break into the International Development sector.
After working in the sector in Africa for 4 years, I have had the opportunity to travel all over the continent and engage with people from varied backgrounds. During this time, two things have become clear to me: Africa’s youth are the continent’s greatest asset, and they should be given the opportunity to play an integral role in shaping and driving the development agenda of their continent.
Launch Africa was born out of a desire to support African youth, wherever they may reside, so that they might be empowered to play a more active role in contributing to sustainable development on the African continent.
