“When you think of a place that inspires innovation,
You probably won’t think of my country
When you think of the next great tech developers
You probably won’t think of a young Nigerien girl
But I thought differently.
Where others saw obstacles,
I saw a chance to make a difference
A chance to use my skills to help people
To change perceptions, break moulds
And when I think about the future of my country,
All I see is possibility, all I see is hope
Because we are a generation of young people
With the power to change the world”
About Generation Unlimited:
By 2030 there will be 2 billion young women and men seeking opportunities for a bright future throughout the world.
If these young people are prepared with the right skills for work, they will live out their full potential and lift up entire nations. But investments in learning and training are falling short and too many young people are not keeping pace with the evolving demands of employment.
Generation Unlimited brings young people together with the private sector, governments, international and local organizations to tackle this urgent challenge. We are connecting secondary-age education and training to a complex and fast-changing world of work. We’re matching young people with job opportunities, fostering entrepreneurship and empowering a generation to fully engage with their societies as active citizens.
