“Youth are not motivated to stay in the continent. They are not given that good atmosphere, that good environment, for them to realize their own potentials within the continent.”
– Ousman Touray
In a previous post, I highlighted the rising population in Africa. By the year 2100, Africa is predicted to account for 40% of the global population and overtake Asia’s 60% by 2060. African youth, 24 years of age and younger, currently make up half of Africa’s population. And what’s so encouraging is that many of them are influencing a Pan-Africanist mindset that will change the trajectory of the continent, particularly youth leader Ousman Touray.
Ousman Touray is a Pan-Africanist and Ambassador of the University of The Gambia. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Development Studies at the University of The Gambia and completed a mentorship program in Rwanda, receiving a post-graduate scholarship on public policies. His work across the continent includes advocating for Pan-Africanism and socio-economic development.
I want to share a round table talk where Touray discusses unity, Africa’s agenda, and the need for Africans to invest in Africa.
