Why OAYouth is important to African Youth

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Organisation of African Youth responds to the extraordinary social challenges and changes in the continent that vastly affect the productivity of African youth. The organisation's unique approach is premised on its continental outlook and independence as a youth-led movement that bridges divides of national, political, racial and religious insularities.

 Through OAYouth, young people have a neutral platform to work together towards the common national and African Agenda. In 2009 OAYouth became the first of its kind member-based continental youth movement that is not affiliated to political parties and controlled through governments. The organisation is a platform where youth represent themselves.

According to the African Union (AU), 65% of the total population of Africa is below the age of 35 years, and over 35% are between the ages of 15 and 35 years - making Africa the most youthful continent. Although more than half of Africa’s population comprises youth, most of them live in extreme poverty – 60.7 million young people live on less than US $1 a day.

United Nations concludes that low levels of education, limited skill sets and restricted opportunities exclude young people from gaining productive work.

Without opportunities for decent work, disaffected youth are more easily enticed to participate in disruptive behaviours, such as drug abuse, civil unrest and violence; including armed conflicts and other forms of criminal activities.

Youth remain at the periphery of decision making processes, whilst they are dealt a bad hand with Africa’s major problems. HIV/AIDS is spreading amongst them; teenage pregnancy, school dropouts, prostitution and crime are all reducing their productivity.

Evidently, if youth do not speak and act for themselves, no one else will.

The problem of youth employment is even more complex in Africa than any other part of the  world. Slow-growing economies have been unable to generate enough job opportunities to absorb the large number of young people graduating every year. While African countries have generated strong bi-lateral relations with big economies such as China and USA, the cheap processed and agricultural imports have stifled manufacturing and reducing employment. Youth need to build new enterprises to grow and provide jobs, supported by entrepreneurship skilling.

Home grown solutions to local problems
OAYouth projects are executed by youth in local and regional areas according to the needs of the communities in question and availability of resources. Solutions to local challenges come from local youth themselves.

The projects are implemented in partnership with other organisations, companies, institutes and under the supervision of qualified personnel. OAYouth organises meetings, trainings, workshops, conferences, cultural drama, broadcasting radio programs and debates; sharing with the young thought leaders and other stakeholders.

Overall, local young people are key drivers, beneficiaries and participants to these projects.

    advised. In this the surgeon removes tiny plugs of skin, each containing a few hairs, from the back or sides of the scalp and after that they implant the plugs into the bald
    sections of the scalp. The patients are advised to take hair loss medication before and after surgery to improve
    the results. clip in extensions

    fellow McCaull Comic Opera Company actor Jefferson De Angelis were
    doing the following skit for their third encore in Boccaccio.
    Bell returns "with a bat in his hand, followed by DeWolf Hopper and De Angelis. The latter has a ball, and as Hopper takes the bat in hand and Bell acts as catcher the former goes through the customary contortion act in pitching, and as Hopper hits the ball he runs off the stage, as if running the bases, and presently returns chased by De Angelis, who passes the ball to Bell as catcher just as Hopper makes a big slide for home base. wigs

    This is not the case! You can not use a blonde box
    dye to dye dark hair to blonde, even when the before and after color
    panel on the side of the hair dye might indicate otherwise.
    I often have people ask me why their black hair didn't turn out blonde, or at
    least light brown, after using a pretty (in the pictures) natural golden blonde box hair color..

    hair extensions Coffin had the idea of welding in an inert gas atmosphere in 1890, but even in the
    early 20th century, welding non ferrous materials such as aluminum and magnesium
    remained difficult because these metals react rapidly with
    the air and result in porous, dross filled welds.[5] Processes using flux covered electrodes did not satisfactorily protect the weld
    area from contamination. To solve the problem, bottled inert gases were used in the beginning of the 1930s.

    A few years later, a direct current, gas shielded welding process emerged in the aircraft industry
    for welding magnesium.[6]. hair extensions

    It Doesn't Matter!Being probably the most common answer I have stumbled upon, it simply
    depends on how you look at things. It's the classic

    wigs for women Frederick occupied Silesia, except for three fortresses at Glogau, Brieg and Breslau,[34] in just seven weeks, despite poor roads and
    bad weather.[31] The fortress at Ohlau fell to Frederick almost immediately and became the winter quarters for Frederick's army.[31]
    In late March 1741, Frederick set out on his campaign again but was forced to fall back by a sudden surprise attack
    by the Austrians. The first real battle Frederick faced in Silesia was the Battle of Mollwitz
    on 10 April 1741.[35] Though Frederick had actually served under Prince Eugene of
    Savoy, this was the first time he would command an army.
    Believing that his army had been defeated by the Austrians, Frederick sought
    to avoid capture and galloped away,[36] leaving Field
    Marshal Kurt Schwerin in command of the army wigs for women.
