30 under 30 Young African leaders

The African continent is very young in terms of its population and young Africans play a crucial role in the development of the continent, but the work of these unsung heroes does not often receive coverage. Young and More Initiative (YOAMI) has launched a campaign to amplify the work and voices of young African leaders. Through this campaign, 30 young African leaders who are 30 years or younger, will be featured on YOAMI’s inspire newsletter (Blog) where YOAMI will shed light on their outstanding leadership achievements.
