Youth unemployment in Zambia is a national crisis that needs immediate attention. The time is now to transform the unemployment dilemma the youth way. We the youth have to take the reins in our hands and choose to do something about our situation rather than waiting for others to do something for us. Unless the youth work together and remain determined to do something about the unemployment crisis, it will simply remain a discussion discussed over and over. We have the potent...

Africa is the second most populous and 'youngest' continent on earth, having the highest concentration of youth. Up to 70 per cent of Africa’s people are under the age of 30. According to Shantayanan Devarajan, Chief Economist for the World Bank’s Africa region, the current youth of Africa are not only important for Africa but also for the world. However, young people in the continent face grave unemployment challenges. At her current level of development, one would doubt...

If I have to pick one big challenge for youth in my country, it’ll definitely be unemployment. As a Tunisian young citizen, I have always been worried about the raising rate of unemployment. In fact, the unemployment rate among Tunisian university degree holders is 30 percent, more than twice the 2005 rate of 14 percent. Year after year, the number of young people with a university degree increases, but also a large number of them find a major difficulty in finding a job. F...

If you are wondering what I am concluding, kindly check the first two posts here and here. It is great to know that our youth know what changes to expect and demand from our leaders for the benefit of society and national prosperity. After listening and interacting with many young people like myself, I have come up with some wrap-up points-or words of wisdom, like the older people say it here. I hope many youths find invaluable advice in these words. 1. Education is not...

Have you had an experience that upended your views or enlightened your view concerning certain issues? You need to read my first post in this series. On August 12, the International Youth Day, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Global Citizen launched a #showyourselfie global social media campaign to urge world leaders to make the needs and rights of young people a priority in the post-2015 development agenda. Young people were encouraged to take a selfie and...

"You are the future"- How many times have you heard that sentence? We have been told that we are not responsible for the world we have inherited, but for the future we will build. And in Spain at least, we carry it upon our shoulders. Youth in Spain have to lead with a very high rate of unemployment. And worse than that, with a lack of future perspective. Waiting for the economy to heal, some young people stay in Spain while many (around 300,000) have emigrated since the start...

This is a story I got from one of the youths when I visited South Western Uganda during one of my education campaigns. She says: In my Community we (Youths) have the following problems 1. Illiteracy especially for girls 2. Poverty 3. Unemployment. Addressing the is the issue in number 1 above, it comes as a result of the community having low trust in girls who they believe are not good enough to be educated as far as boys should. Their reason being, girls are good...

Everyone is talking about the same thing and that is “youth unemployment”. Youth unemployment has become a common subject such that it has put government under pressure from oppositions. Many are blaming government to be on inertia over the same subject. This is because qualified youths do jobs that are readily available. With an influx of institutions that offer higher education, youths are now able to access tertiary education and acquire skills to do jobs. Now the questi...

Today, as I promised a while ago, I decided to write to you on the educational system in my country, Romania. This article is going to be mostly informative, but I will also try to observe some weak or/and positive points. I hope you will find it interesting and that it will help you have an insight on an educational system, similar or not to the one in your country. Firstly, you should know that education in Romania is based on a tuition-free system. There are 11 mandatory years...
