Kenny Dlamini writes that during the United States of America-Africa Leaders’ summit which took place on August 2014 in Washington, one of the shared commitments outlined by the United Sates and African governments is to increase investment in the next generation; investment in Africa’s youth.
Dlamini says the call to invest in the youth was in line with the theme of the summit ‘Investing in the Next Generation’, which focused on ways of stimulating growth, unlocking opportunities and creating an enabling environment for the next generation.
He says, “It is true that Africa cannot always rely on outside help for its future prosperity. At the same time this does not mean that the continent must not welcome outside assistance that claims or seeks to help Africans to build a better and prosperous future.”
