£20 million research hub could help African teens achieve their full potential
22 January 2019
AfOx joins the University of Oxford to run the UKRI GCRF Accelerating Achievement for Africa’s Adolescents Hub. By 2050 Africa will be home to half a billion teenagers. Despite the incredible opportunity that such a vibrant pool of young potential presents, many of these teens will already be trapped in a cycle of poverty, violence, low education and poor health, by the time they reach adolescence. This new Hub aims to help them achieve their goals and aspirations.
