Girls and Women

Share your BIG idea and join ONE at the African Union Summit


Join the fight against extreme poverty

We know young people will shape the future but 130 million girls around the world are being denied an education — 53 million of them are right here in Africa. Without an education, no child can reach their full potential.

This has to change.

The 2017 African Union theme is “Harnessing the demographic dividend through investments in Youth” and there’s been a lot of conversation all over the continent about the best way to ensure that this vision is achieved and successful.

But we want to make sure the voices of young people are capture and hear what they believe is the best way forward.

If you think that you have that BIG idea which African leaders should implement to harness the power of girls and create a better future for everyone, let us know!

We have lots of fun and exciting prizes including an opportunity to join ONE at the AU Summit in January, an iPad, exciting ONE hampers, an opportunity to become ONE youth ambassadors, and be featured on ONE’s digital platforms.

Good luck!
