On 12 August we joined the international community to celebrate “International Youth Day” – a day set aside by the UN General Assembly to celebrate the role of young men and women as essential partners of change, and to raise awareness of challenges and problems facing our youth.

As we celebrate the day, we proudly recognize our #YouthEmpowered initiative, which has been launched  in 16 of our markets, reaching over 20,000 youths with live trainings tailored to provide relevant life and business skills. In addition to physical workshops, our #YouthEmpowered online learning digital hub caters to a larger population of youths, providing access to a wide array of content that improves learnings,  mentorship and collaboration.
