Why?

MISSION : Youthia exists to re-imagine youth economic development to create a better world.

VISION : To be the most influential African youth brand in the world.




Key Objectives

Youthia is a continental commitment to enable the economic empowerment of 1 million youth (18 – 35 years old) entrepreneurs by 2025 from all walks of life – from farmer, artisan, inventor, miner, producer, recycler, supplier, retailer, to service provider.

To build a distinct and vibrant youth industry.

To raise thriving and sustainable communities.

How?

To reach 1 million youth entrepreneurs, we will implement the Youthia Model comprising of four core values:

Collaborate

Collaborate with strategic partners, the Golden Triangle – government, civil society and the private sector.

Progressive

Be Progressive through the power of leveraging existing resources for a strong multiplier effect, while building capacity and capital for greater development.

Transfer Ownership

Transfer of Ownership by directly targeting 250,000 youth and each youth is required to connect with 3 other youth, as independent business owners or as their employees, for a strong local-level reach and continuity. Each youth becomes a hub of a network of a minimum of 3. [250,000 X 4 = 1 million youth].

Pioneer

Pioneer unconventional solutions to local problems and challenges.
