9 Young African Activists to Look Out for in 2022

These incredible young people are leading Africa into a year of action-taking.

Lack of development as well as high rates of inequality and poverty across Africa have long been perceived as a burden on the rest of the world, presented as things to pity rather than things that need solving.

This outlook is one that has to evolve in order for true change to occur on the continent. Luckily, young people are standing up and speaking out for what Africa deserves. A fresh generation of persistent voices, innovators, changemakers, and action-takers are making sure that the world sees the continent with fresh eyes, and that Africa itself rises from the ashes of vulnerability.

Last year revealed that globally, we are tired of dealing with significant issues in the same old ways and expecting radical improvements. This is a message that echoed loud and clear after young climate activists Vanessa Nakate and Greta Thunberg spoke at last year’s pre-COP26 summit.

“No more empty promises, no more empty summits, no more empty conferences,” asserted Nakate.

“Blah blah blah ... This is all we hear from our so-called leaders, words. Words that sound great, but so far, have led to no action,” Thunberg rallied.

This tone was carried all throughout 2021 as the world continued to reckon with COVID-19, a worsening climate crisis, and increased global inequality. As such, 2022 will be defined by the need for action, and nowhere is this more pertinent than on the African continent. Thankfully, young activists have been captaining this need for action, and we can’t wait to see what they’ll do next.

These are just a few of Africa’s young changemakers that we’ll be looking out for in 2022.
Nkosilathi Nyathi , Zimbabwe


Zimbabwean activist Nkosilathi Nyathi has been a climate activist for nine years, after he began standing up against climate change at the tender age of 10 years old.

Nyathi started making videos documenting the impact that the climate crisis was having on his immediate environment, including capturing flood damage and soil erosion, and interviewing experts on pollution. The young advocate went on to receive a grant from UNICEF and the G20-backed Global Infrastructure Hub in 2016 to build a biogas digester at his primary school. This meant that the school could replace the use of firewood in the kitchen with biogas, which is less of a pollutant to the environment.

Nyathi, who helped to establish the Zimbabwean chapter of the Fridays for Future campaign last year, continues to make videos alongside UNICEF Africa, and has also started venturing into public speaking on the urgency of climate change.

Stacy Owino, Kenya


When she was just 18 years old, Kenyan student and women’s rights advocate Stacy Owino co-created an app to help bring an end to female genital mutilation (FGM) in her country.

Three years later, Owino is not only a determined young woman studying STEM, she’s also an African representative on the Youth Sounding Board for the European Commission, and was honoured at last year’s Young Activists Summit held at the UN in Geneva for her work towards eradicating FGM.

When we asked her why it was important for young African girls to take up space, Owino told Global Citizen: “​​Something the world needs to know is that things are changing, and us as African youth are really taking up these spaces. We're not going to let you tell us about us. We will tell you about ourselves.”

Alaa Salah, Sudan


Two years ago Alaa Salah was dubbed Sudan’s “Nubian Queen” when she stood up for the country’s revolution. The 25-year-old went viral after videos of her dressed in white, standing atop a car and reciting a rousing poem, circulated on social media.

Salah showed courage in putting herself at the forefront of the movement in a country where women’s voices are heavily restricted.

She was later shortlisted for the Nobel Peace Prize, and the image of her in white has become a symbol of freedom for citizens in Sudan. This symbol is key to 2022 because, although her efforts — and the efforts of other Sudanese women — helped move the country towards a democracy in 2019, the end of 2021 saw the transitional government being dissolved into a military coup, and the beginning of this year has seen unrest in the country as it tries to establish a functional government.

While Sudan has yet to become stable in its freedom, Salah’s influence has kept Sudanese women going in their effort to stand up for their country.

Trevor Oahile, Botswana


Trevor Oahile is a 24-year-old student who's helping to educate Botswana’s youth about the importance of sexual and reproductive health and rights through a radio show called Don’t Get It Twisted. The show addresses young people, particularly boys and men, and explores ways in which they can be better informed about the stigmas surrounding reproductive health.

Oahile also works with UNFPA, the United Nations' sexual and reproductive health agency, to run training programs across the country, speaking about social accountability and empowering other youth activists in Botswana.

Lual Mayen, South Sudan


Lual Mayen went from walking three hours a day from a refugee camp in Northern Uganda seeking a place to charge his computer, to founding his own gaming company, Junub Games, and creating a game to help inspire peace.

The 28-year-old entrepreneur and 2021 Young Activist Summit honoree used his personal experience as a refugee from South Sudan to create a game called Salaam, which allows players to experience the life of a refugee while helping them seek a peaceful resolution. Salaam also has in-app purchases that not only advance you in the game, but also aid refugees in real life. For example, when you buy water for your player in the game, you are also purchasing water for someone in a refugee camp.

“My hope is I want other refugees to understand that we are not just here to survive. We are also here to thrive,” the CEO of Junub Games told CNN.

Mayen also uses his voice to speak publicly about the global refugee crisis, and inspires young Africans to dream bigger.

Unity is the key for African youth

The ‘African dream’ is made up of a myriad collection of desires: the wish to address the legacies of colonisation, slavery, and other forms of domination and crimes against humanity to achieve self-sufficiency, and advance social justice and equality in our societies for sustainable futures.

In contemporary times, the African dream has come to mean many representations of hope, pan-Africanism, respect, empowerment and working together towards a common goal.

In recent years, we have youth-led social movements: #FeesMustFall and #RhodesMustFall, which have drawn our attention to reclaiming our own idea of progress for a better future for the next generations.

In 1996, Vicky Sampson sang a song of hope titled
“African Dream” at the Africa Cup of Nations. This was the first tournament that the South African soccer team won after the country became a democratic state in 1994.

There is a verse that goes,
“ Cause in my African dream there is a new tomorrow / My African dream is a dream that we can follow / And though it would seem my hope is an illusion / My African dream is an end to the confusion.”

This song is inspirational and reminds me of the power that lies in using our voices to speak against social injustices while leveraging our natural resources, leadership, talents, skills and taking the necessary action together to bring about change.

Sumona Bose, an MPhil student in Justice and Transformation from the University of Cape Town (UCT), says:
“My African dream is good leadership, transparent governance embedded with cultural equity, and a holistic sense of socio-economic fulfilment.

“As a continent that is rich in resources and skills, it is visionary to pursue unity and productivity on all fronts, with our eyes on a sustainable future that boasts of justice and accountability, combined with success and optimism.”

For the African continent, democracy, structural transformation, feminism, good governance, and respect are some ultimate conditions we need to magnify the AU’s Agenda 2063. It has an African dream of “an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens, representing a dynamic force in the international arena.”

Agenda 2063 is a 50-year commitment (since its inception in 2013) to move us forward. Agenda 2063 has begun activating inclusive and sustainable development through initiatives such as the African Continental Free Trade Agreement.

Community spirit
The agenda embodies the African Renaissance and the principles of pan-Africanism which are unity and solidarity, self-determination, self-reliance, progress, human dignity, and economic freedom.

There is an African proverb:
“When a bird builds its nest, it uses the feathers of other birds.” It means, through co-operation and mutual understanding, we can resolve any challenge.

It delivers a message of consolation for youth who hold a similar African dream to Siviwe Cingo, a Mastercard Foundation Scholar from UCT:
“I pray for an equal society. A society that is peaceful and grounded on the principle of communality rather than individuality. That we practice ubuntu if we are to become a community.

“An African community that is united to make it possible for a child who must walk a couple of kilometres to school to make it to university. Furthermore, may we realise the dream of not being a people that bite each other but feed each other, meaning may we be Africans that do not steal and kill each other but Africans that extend a hand when another African is in need.

For any African dream to come to fruition, education is the most powerful tool that we can use to think of innovative manifestations, strategic frameworks, progressive policies, and other solutions to resolve the challenges that Africans and the continent face today.

Youth Day Statement: Economic Justice for Women Project

Economic Justice for Women Project (EJWP) joins Zimbabwe in commemorating the National Youth Day, a day meant to celebrate the efforts made by young people in building the country. The theme for this year is “Alleviate substance and drug abuse by the youth”.

The Youth in Zimbabwe constitutes 67.7% of its 13 million total populations with the majority being young women. The contemporary status of young women in Zimbabwe reflects the increased socio-economic inequality gap. The minimal focus on corruption and partisan abuse of power in public resource distribution and use has impacted the provision of adequate social service delivery which reflects on the socio-economic status of the young people. Consequently, we are reminded of the dire impact of COVID-19 on young women’s vain efforts towards economic independence. This has led to a rise in unemployment levels and rapid transition in the informal sector. The informal sector is characterized by high levels of violence, abuse and its returns fail to carter for young people basic needs, resulting in higher levels of stress, desperation and anxiety. This has resulted in increased levels of alcohol, drug and substance abuse as coping mechanisms. Researches carried out indicate that the prevalence of drug abuse is at 57% among young people in Zimbabwe. Young women are more vulnerable as reflected in increases in Gender Based Violence, rape, teenage pregnancies, suicides and other mental health disturbances.

To this end, EJWP calls upon the government through the following ministries to consider respective recommendations:
  • Ministry of Women Affairs, Gender and Community Development- To cement advocacy efforts by the women’s movement to enhance socio-economic security for young women.
  • Ministry of Youth, Sports, Arts and Recreation- to amplify and implement calls for social and economic support from young people in Zimbabwe, particularly vulnerable groups. The ministry should push to strengthen young women participation in all development processes to ensure they are inclusive, democratic and counter issues on the ground.
  • Ministry of Health and Child Care- Need to strengthen psycho-social support by establishing friendly institutions/environments and support networks at community level
  • Ministry of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage-To strengthen investigative and punitive measures to ensure an end to drug paddling across Zimbabwe, ensuring justice for all survivors.
  • Ministry of Finance and Economic Development-To adequately finance respective ministry with a mandate give socio-economic support to young women and ending drug trafficking.
  • Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education – To facilitate young women access to education and capacitate them on drug abuse and its consequences.
  • Ministry of Small and Medium Enterprises- To increase economic opportunities for young people, facilitate their growth and independence, reducing their vulnerabilities to desperation and anxiety that can trigger the abuse of drugs and substances.
  • Civil Society Organizations-To strategically collaborate amongst ourselves, relevant ministries, parliamentarians and the broader citizenry to curb drug abuse amongst young people, particularly young women.
Happy National Youth Day!!!

Helping the Victims and Survivors of Organised Violence and Torture in Zimbabwe: Southern African Political Economy Series (SAPES) in Association with Reseach & Advocacy Unit (RAU)
Date: Thursday 24 February 2022 (5.30pm)


Zoom meeting
Meeting ID: 530 628 3186
Passcode: 555888

One of the deeply troubling aspects of OVT is the apparent lack of awareness of the serious consequences for victims’ health, and especially their mental health. It was this lack of awareness that was the motive for the ground-breaking conference in 1990. The theme, The Health Consequences of Organised Violence and Torture in Southern Africa, made this concern plain, and led to the establishment of several initiatives in the SADC region to push for both available services and greater awareness. In South Africa, several small initiatives became established organizations, making important contributions to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission process. These included the Project for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation at the University of the Witwatersrand (now CSVR), Cowley House (now the Trauma Centre for Survivors of Violence and Torture), the KwaZulu-Natal Programme for Survivors of Violence (now Sinani), and the National Peace Accord Trust. (NPAT) These developments were echoed all around the world under the umbrella of the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT).

Zimbabwe, because of the many periods in which Organised Violence and Torture (OVT) has occurred, has the consequence of tens of thousands of victims and survivors. This report outlines the problems that victims and survivors in Zimbabwe are experiencing, especially the mental health problems that are the most persistent sequelae of OVT. This history, and the ways in which assistance has been provided to the victims and survivors, is described in a new report produced by the Research and Advocacy Unit for the VOTAER Consortium, Helping the victims and survivors of Organised Violence and Torture in Zimbabwe.

The report looks at the legacy from the Liberation War until the present and indicates some of the ways in which civil society organizations  provide assistance to the victims and survivors. The webinar today presents the report and brings together a distinguished panel to discuss the report and its findings.

Social / Behavior Change and Communication Coordinator: Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture (CNFA)
Deadline: 4 March 2022


Location: Hwange, Zimbabwe

About 
For more than 50 years, The Manoff Group, Inc. (TMG) has been an international leader in designing and assisting the implementation of programs that effectively lead to desired social and behavioral outcomes, allowing populations to enjoy improved livelihoods, health and nutrition. TMG is a leader in social and behavior change (SBC). Its innovative Behavior Integration approach is a practical methodology for realizing measurable and sustained behavior change at the individual, community and organizational levels. Integral to our work is policy advocacy, capacity development among stakeholders, and behavioral monitoring and evaluation to strengthen program management and impact.

Project description 
Amalima Loko – a five-year (2020-2025) USAID-funded Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance program is designed to improve food security and elevate the livelihoods of more than 67,000 vulnerable households across five districts of Zimbabwe’s Matabeleland North: Binga, Hwange Lupane, Nkayi, and Tsholotsho. Implemented by Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture (CNFA), the $75 million Amalima Loko builds on the legacy of its predecessor Amalima, that worked to sustainably improve food security and nutrition for vulnerable Zimbabwean households. To accomplish Amalima Loko’s outcomes, the program utilizes a unique Community Visioning approach designed to strengthen community and household-level resilience, promote nutrition-sensitive initiatives including a blanket food distribution program, and improve watershed infrastructure and practices that provide long-term foundations for improved resilience and agriculture-based livelihoods.

Position background
Social and Behavior Change is a pivotal requirement for Amalima Loko to succeed since all program actors from policy makers to family members must do something differently than what they are currently doing to achieve the development outcomes that should define Amalima Loko. Fortunately, there is a rich legacy to build from. Amalima had a number of successes with key behavioral shifts in nutrition and agriculture and importantly in social change related to gender norms. For example, two activities seen as best practices were the Male Champions and the development of the Village Agriculture Coordinator (VAC) as a behavior change agent explicitly invested to work as a peer educator, going beyond demonstrating recommended practices and helping farmers work through barriers to adopting new practices. 

It will be that ability of all Amalima Loko actors to resolve the factors that inhibit their practice of desired behaviors that is the work of the Social and Behavior Change team. The team will integrate behavior considerations in Activity planning and throughout implementation so that Amalima Loko enables people to shift social norms and change practices to realize program goals. The SBC team will work across all three project purposes and with cross cutting activities. In this work critical behaviors for the Activity will be prioritized and defined, pathways to change illuminated including the factors to address and actors to support change. Inclusion of behavioral metrics within the Activity’s MEL Plan will support the alignment of inputs for behavior change, monitoring efforts and adaptive management. The SBC work should be enhanced with a strong partnership with all Community Visioning activities. 

Position summary
The SBC and Communication Coordinator will: Be a member of the SBC Team and will contribute to the strategic vision for social and behavior change linked to improved community governance, livelihood, natural resources management and health and nutrition outcomes; Support SBC strategy design, SBCC plans and implementation; Oversee and / or coordinate the formative and operations research (as needed); Using data from the M&E team, track the critical behavioral outcomes across project activities focused especially within the geographic area of one’s duty post; Within the district team, take leadership and responsibility for the SBC technical area’s work while contributing to the overall program’s SBC and Communication programming; Advise on communication activities and methods; Support the development and / or adaptation of communication materials required for the program; Coordinate SBC Communication activities with other entities working in the Amalima Loko catchment area; Participate in curriculum design and development of job aides for trainings especially as they relate to communication and behavior change advocacy; Supervise the activities of field agents supporting SBC and SBCC activities; Manage capacity strengthening and supportive supervision in the effective use of SBC approaches by front line workers and volunteers; Integrate monitoring of SBC activities with overall activity monitoring and collaborative learning and adaptation; Facilitate in various trainings across the program’s areas of focus and participate in community dialogues for community visioning purposes; Contribute to Activity quarterly and annual reports as requested;

About
Founded in 1993, Médecins du Monde Switzerland is a medical humanitarian NGO and part of the international Médecins du Monde network. We provide sustainable access to health care for people in vulnerable situations in Switzerland and around the world. We provide care and bear witness to the overcoming of barriers to health and to the realization of the right to health for all. Everyone should have access to health care, without financial, social, cultural, or geographical barriers.

We want to provide real access to health. Médecins du Monde's actions are at the crossroads of humanitarian action and public health.

We call on regional, national, and international authorities to facilitate access to health care and promote respect for human rights. We advocate for sustainable change. 

Context
Zimbabwe about one in three women aged 15-49 has experienced physical violence and about one in four women have experienced sexual violence since the age of 15. Similarly, 19% of women of childbearing age have an unmet need for sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and 21.6% of girls aged 15-19 have already started childbearing. Limited access to mental health (MH) care is also very high in Chimanimani and Chipinge districts due to a lack of specialized professionals as well as limited access to specific medications for patients. This difficult situation has been aggravated by the Cyclone Idai in March 2019 that hit the hardest the Province of Manicaland, specifically its two districts of Chimanimani and Chipinge. The floods and landslides led to the death of more than 300 people (with just as many still missing), the destruction of people’s homes, livelihoods and public infrastructure and the disruption of services. Since 2020, Médecins du Monde Switzerland (MdM-CH) is involved in the devastated area of Chimanimani to provide the continuum of care and a better quality of services. More specifically, we develop SRH and work on improving the identification and care of MH patients and of Gender based violence (GBV) survivors. To do so, MdM-CH is doing rehabilitation and refurbishment of health clinics and organizes training of health professionals on GBV, SRH and mental health. Together with a local partner, we also train community leaders to identify and refer potential patients.
