RCE Minna and RCE Grand Rapids organize the first Youth Virtual Conference in Africa

RCE Minna and RCE Grand Rapids organize the first Youth Virtual Conference (YVC) in Africa on youth empowerment and vocational training.

African countries face large economic challenges, partly due to the long dependence on mono-economies and the fall in commodity values. Youth are often the most affected, with high unemployment rates and little economic perspective. Incoherent youth programmes and little funding have added to the urgency for Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programmes in this region.

This year’s WED on the 5th June ¨Go Wild for Life¨ focussed on the fight against illegal wildlife trade. “Go Wild for Life” encouraged everyone to spread the message of the damage done by wildlife crime and how to prevent further damage.
