Youth Dialogue

Organisation of African Youth (OAYouth) was formed in 2009, conforming to the provisions of African Youth Charter, which was adopted by the African Union.

An Unceasing Restlessness

  “In the presence of a member of the Party, the people are silent […] But when the evening comes, away from the village, in the cafes or by the river, the bitter unceasing anger makes itself heard” - Franz Fanon

The time has come for us to give power back to the people. The working poor are exhausted by the cycle of poverty that traps them in informal settlements and townships where seething anger against the state often breaks out into violence and mounting xenophobic attacks as people compete for scarce resources.

Zuma, Youth, Mark Youth Day

President Jacob Zuma has praised the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) for its work in improving the lives of young people, but remained baffled by people who torched public buildings to complain about services.

Junior Achievement South Africa Comments on the 2010/11 Budget

While it should be appreciated that the government has placed education as a priority within the budget, it is still our deep feeling that greater action is required. The Minister talks at length about the huge employment drive wherein companies will be reimbursed via the tax system if they employ inexperienced young people – he boldly estimates that 800 000 young people stand to benefit in this way. This is highly commendable.
