Africa's greatest resource is its youth. Generation Y has improved in health and benefited from enrollment in schools.The continent is creating a generation of young people who have the mindset and the motivation to change the world around them.
Women make up the majority of small farmers.Yet barriers exist that push women traders and producers into informal economy where a lack of access to finance, information and network limit their capacity to grow their business and their contribution to the economy.
TMG Foundation is embarking on this journey with them as education, empowerment are a focal belief in all our endeavors and children and women are the future we all rely on.
