Between 2015 and 2050, Africa’s youth will almost double, from 230 to 452 million. The fastest growing African economies have not created enough jobs for youth. In 2015, 60% of Africans were under 25 years old. In 2016, the average age of African presidents is 66, while the average median age of the continent’s population is 20. Of the 25 fastest growing economies in the world between 2004 and 2014, ten are African. Nearly 15 million young Africans were unemployed in 2015.
