In an effort to mobilize the voices of African youth, GYAN is finalizing its book The Africa We're Creating Vol. I: A Collection of Essays by African Youth — featuring more than 50 essays from GYAN's 1st annual essay contest. Our book highlights insightful essays that offer important perspective on issues facing Africa today, and will soon be available for purchase. Below is a sneak peek of the book's cover!
