Rollback Unemployment Campaign
Pan-African program by The Stage Africa Foundation
Rollback Unemployment Campaign is a project modeled by The Stage Africa Foundation under its Trustfund program to increase awareness on Africa’s growing youth unemployment rate caused by its fast growing population, slow demographic transition and low job creation and spur both government, private institutions and global development partners to take unified action towards addressing the challenge by 2050 through promoting and supporting youth entrepreneurship education in Africa.
The Campaign is being developed as a social movement. Actions are developed and directed by a unified Civil Society Organizations effort led by The Stage Africa Foundation backed by the various national authorities in Africa and a global partnership which consists of development agencies, banks, private sector groups and researchers. The Campaign in the future plans to establish strong partnership with top notch consultants and academic institutions around the world to provide high quality, practical, consistent and relevant technical advice on creating policies and programs that addresses youth unemployment challenge in Africa.
The Campaign will also support research and development of innovative products and tools that will engage the ideas, talents and skills of young Africans in creating progressive and sustainable economic opportunities for the millions of young people on the continent who are creative, smart and driven to succeed.
