AfCFTA Sports Mentorship Program
June 1 @ 8:00 am - December 31 @ 5:00 pm
Sport is recognised by the United Nations as an enabler towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development given its ability to promote diplomacy and cooperation and to reach youth, women and those with disabilities. In addition, the sports industry also presents itself as an effective enabler in creating inclusive jobs, entrepreneurship and innovation and is recognised as a highly efficient tool to strengthen youth skills that are important to help youth access the labour market.
It is against this backdrop, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) in collaboration with Africa Sports Unified (ASU) have initiated the AfCFTA Global Mentorship Program to leverage the ability for sport to support the inclusive implementation of the AfCFTA and help young people in the African continent accelerate their entrepreneurial capabilities as well as their skills- and network development.
