We are passionate about helping Africa’s unemployed youth’s to achieve economic prosperity through entrepreneurship
MEET THE FOUNDER OF AIM HIGHER AFRICA
“I am a believer in Africa’s untapped potential which is our Youths. I believe the only way we can achieve greater economic prosperity is to empower our millennial generation and give them the tools they need to achieve a better and brighter future.”
Who We Are
Youth unemployment is one of today’s big global challenges. The World Bank estimates we need 600 million new jobs in the next 10 years just to keep global employment rates constant and according to the International Labour Organization, 73.3 million of the world’s unemployed are young people (about 36%). Add ‘under-employed’ youth to this and the number triples; over 169 million young people earn less than US$2 per day. The problem is even greater in rural communities where increasing migration to urban areas around the world means a higher concentration of rural poverty. Another study by the African Centre for Economic Transformation claims that almost half of the 10 million graduates churned out of the over 668 universities in Africa yearly do not get jobs.
At Aim Higher Africa we believe in putting the power back in the hands of our youths. Through our unique approach of entrepreneurship development, design thinking and information technology; we are able to empower millennials to look for opportunities within their communities that will lead to their economic transformation and create a new league of African Youngpreneurs.
