Youth Migration and Poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa: Empowering the Rural Youth

Published on


This article is a part of the Human Rights in Sub-Saharan Africa digest, published within the Human rights and human welfare - An online journal of academic literature review at the University of Denver. 'Investing in the rural youth—for education, for jobs, and for health care—is imperative if national governments seek to reduce poverty and diminish urban drift. Policies and programs must recognize youth and decision-makers need to engage youth in poverty reduction strategies. With this framework, youth can improve their rural livelihoods through self-sustaining employment prospects, education, health care, and social life'.
