This month, the World Bank in collaboration with Africa Gathering (AG), a public forum, is hosting series of brainstorming sessions on youth employment in Africa.

They are being held in Ghana, Kenya and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

In Ghana the forum was held on Friday, April 20 in Accra and is expected to be held in Kenya on Tuesday, April 24 and the DRC on Friday, April 27.

A statement issued in Accra and copied to the Ghana News Agency said: “We want to hear from Africa’s young people themselves about how we can do more to create good paying jobs. These sessions are vital to hear directly from them.”

It said the World Bank was creating a report on youth employment in Africa, where inputs from the continent’s youth were paramount.

The brainstorming sessions will be held to collect real-time feedback, which will be reviewed and highlighted in the report.
