East Africa #YouthInAg - opportunities and challenges

Published on March 17, 2016
"The  formal  sectors  of  employment, where most graduates seek employment, cannot absorb the large number of graduates, estimated to  be  between 10 to 12 million young persons per year, resulting in a large number of educated yet unemployed youth" - AfDB report.
