Join the People’s CALL TO ACTION on jobs in Africa

Millions of young people in Africa aspire to be responsible and productive citizens who can help develop their communities. Yet, according to the International Labour Organization, almost half of African youths in the workforce were either unemployed or working poor in 2019. Since the pandemic hit, more people are out of jobs than ever before, with young people and women impacted most of all.

We’ve partnered with youth networks, think-tanks, Civil Society Organisations, businesses and industry experts to launch the JobsNowAfrica Campaign to help create 15 million decent jobs in Africa each year by 2025.

Will you join us in giving African youth the opportunities they need to fulfill their potential?

We call for urgent action by our governments, the private sector and non-state partners from across Africa to COMMIT to these priorities:

  • Create decent jobs
  • Facilitate doing business and provide the necessary infrastructure
  • Harness youth potential and secure jobs for future generations
  • Ensure safe and dignified employment in all sectors
  • Meet the above commitments with openness, transparency and accountability
