Oct 1, 2014/Ashoka Youth Challenge/Youth Innovations, Employment, Social Enterprise
Ashoka and The MasterCard Foundation have recently launched the Future Forward: Youth Innovations for Employment in Africa challenge to find bold new ideas and projects that will increase employment opportunities for young people in Africa. We’re looking for young people, between the ages of 18-30, from sub-Saharan Africa to join this community and share their solution that is tackling youth employment issues. Top entrants, who submit their solution by November 5, 2014, will be eligible for prizes including an all-expenses-paid trip to the Ashoka Globalizer Summit in South Africa. At this Summit, winners will be connected to other innovators, partners, and investors, in addition to receiving mentorship and training to help their ideas and projects grow.
