The largest generation of youth in history!

Globally today there are 1.8 billion people between the ages of 10-24—they are the largest generation of youth in history. Around 90% of them live in low- and middle-income countries, where they make up a large proportion of the population. Africa is the ‘youngest’ continent, with currently around 60% of its population younger than 25 years.
