African Youth Weigh in on Africa’s Problems

The World Bank has announced the launch of this year’s Blog4Dev competition, an annual writing contest that engages the Sub-Saharan African Youth to share their views on critical issues that affect the region’s economic development. It also gives them the platform to suggest solutions about development topics that are important to them. The theme for this year’s contest is ‘What will it take to end child marriage in your country’? Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest level of child marriage with four in ten young women married before age 18, a UNICEF report shows.
