About the One Million By 2021 initiative

The "One Million by 2021 Initiative" was launched in April 2019 to catalyze action for youth development in Africa. The African Union Commission does this by facilitating connections between AU Member States, corporate sponsors and development partners to inspire investment in African youth. It aims to create 1 million new opportunities for Young Africans in education, employment, entrepreneurship, and engagement across the continent and in the diaspora.

Count Me In

The #1Mby2021 initiative aims to galvanize Member States, corporates, and young Africans themselves, to generate new opportunities for African Youth to help us Build the Africa We Want. Are you in?
