How are you directly or indirectly tackling unemployment in Africa?

Factoring out the effects of covid-19 pandemic ,unemployment is still a serious issue in many African countries. This is usually attributed to the poor governance by bureaucracies and the government. Forgetting that the role of the government is to provide a conducive environment for the creation of jobs. And so this leads me to the following question. What’s your contribution towards the creation of these jobs?

    Every day, through the work we do with young people in schools and universities across Africa, we are struck by the vast amount of economic and creative potential that they represent. As entrepreneurs and business leaders, we are privileged to be able to work with these people – they are the individuals who, given the chance, will go on to be the employers and business leaders of the future.
    And yet there is the most important point: these people will only ever realise their potential if they have the opportunity to do so. Tragically, far too many Africans – particularly younger people – are struggling to find work or are under-employed in roles that don’t pay enough or train and develop them.
    Tackling the problem of unemployment in Africa
    It is a challenge that is hitting Africa’s young talent particularly hard. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), youth unemployment is up to 30 per cent this year already. That is a shocking total – almost a third of young people across the continent aren’t being given the opportunity to earn money for themselves, to contribute economically to their families and their communities, or to develop professionally. Even more worryingly, it seems that these young people are far more likely to be unemployed than adults (by a factor of up to three and half times).
    So, how do we address this problem? Of course, there is no single, simple answer. But from our position as successful entrepreneurs, it is clear there are a number of strategies that we can implement that will begin to make a positive impact on employment rates. For me, these break down into a couple of key areas:
    Promoting a culture of equal opportunity
    Encouraging entrepreneurship
    Creating equal opportunities for all

    because of COVID and lockdown companies are now adopting remote work schedules and businesses are now migrating to online platforms to reach their clients.

    Blogging is an area that has not yet been sufficiently monetised at least in a model that is sustainable in Africa… But people are setting up online shops and market stores on their blogs using then to showcase the talents and services that they offer or even selling advertising space.

    I actually help people start their own blogs so that at the very least they can reach out to a more global audience.
