Story of us

Generation Africa is a network of young storytellers, here to share their as-yet unheard stories and become champions for global development.

We know that stories can be powerful tools for change and the people behind the stories hold the power to help change the world for the better. It has never been more important to hear these stories, where Africa’s young people are at the heart of conversations to inspire and inform the global community.

Work with Generation Africa.

Generation Africa is committed to using their stories to inspire action for the Sustainable Development Goals. To this end, members are available for media comment, event participation and speaking opportunities. To discuss working with them – individually or collectively – please use the contact link at the bottom of this page.

We are looking for undiscovered heroes in Africa. Do you know someone whose extraordinary personal story highlights the need to take action around global health, family planning, nutrition, agriculture, financial inclusion and gender equality?
