Transforming Africa's Largest Generation to its Greatest Generation

Young people’s transition from school to work is a key moment in their lives. Sub-Saharan Africa is home to the largest generation of youth the world has ever had to raise.  How these 200 million young people transition into adulthood will have important implications for the lives of these young people and the development trajectories of their countries. At PICHNET, we engage in research, capacity building, and policy advocacy to leverage the strength of this generation and build a brighter future. 

Evidence to Action

Our research seeks to identify effective programs to build development capacity among young adults.

Building Capital

Our training of youth seeks to develop their human capital in four concentric areas of their lives, including their personal, domestic, work and community lives.   

Amply Voices

Our policy communication, working with a network of journalists, is to draw policy attention to issues connecting youth, demographic dividends and sustainable development.
