Cape Town is a beautiful city, and I'll be visiting it again, thanks to Mastercard Foundation for the invitation to participate in the Young Africa Works Summit, taking place in October.

This news also comes with the founders’ invitation to the 2nd Midem African Forum, in association with Trace, taking place in Lagos, Nigeria, on April 15.
The Young Africa Works Summit will be led by young innovators and entrepreneurs who are driven to tackle youth unemployment in Africa. These innovators and entrepreneurs are expected to come up with solutions that will create dignified and fulfilling work for 30 million young people, especially young women, in Africa by 2030.
Also expected to participate in the summit are African heads of state, business leaders, partner organizations, and a contingent of African youth from across the continent, to make this ambitious goal a reality.
