YOUNG-Africa uses a three-pronged approach to implement our goal of seeing Africa
as a place where young people are encouraged to dream, and are provided the resources
and avenues through which they can see their dreams nourished into reality.
We find and showcase accomplished African inventors and entrepreneurs to inspire
young Africans to believe in their own power to dream. We aim to get rid of the
fictitious notion that inventions and creation of new technologies and products are
not within the realm of the African mind through our website, brochures, advertisements on
media outlets, radio programs, and motivational workshops.
We also realize that more than inspiration is needed to help the young transcend
the burden of poverty. In that light, we aim to provide resources ranging from
technology centers to business-related courses and mentors.
YOUNG-Africa engages the youth with competitions for inventors and
entrepreneurs to submit their best innovative ideas or inventions for a chance to
win monetary awards toward starting their own businesses or buttressing existing
