According to data from the International Labour Organization (ILO), almost half of Africa’s youth 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 women and young people impacted the most.
To address this urgent issue of unemployment, we’ve launched the JobsNowAfrica Campaign to help create 15 million decent jobs in Africa each year by 2025.

While rich countries hoard vaccines leaving billions of people living in low-income countries unvaccinated, the world will be trapped in an endless cycle of variants, boosters, and restrictions.
Tell world leaders to make 2022 the year we vaccinate the world and end the pandemic everywhere.
Without urgent action, the pandemic, climate disasters and devastating wars will continue to push millions of people into joblessness, poverty and hunger. We refuse to be broken by these crises and the cycle of injustice that comes with them. We can rebuild our world for the better, for everyone. We are GenerAction.
Join us and tell leaders it’s time to rewrite the future.

From school closures to the difficulties of home learning, many of us have seen the impact of COVID-19 on our children’s education. Every child deserves a life full of opportunities, starting with learning.
But even before the pandemic, a shocking 90% of 10-year-olds in low-income countries couldn’t read and understand something simple like a health leaflet or a school test. COVID-19 will make this number even worse and girls, in particular, may fall through the cracks. This is a catastrophe for the future of entire generations, unless we act now.
