JUSTICE FOR AFRICA

Since 2016, global wealth has grown by over $12 trillion. In the same time 10,000 African children have been forced into child labour every single week and almost 100 million children and young people in Africa are still being denied their right to education.

This is a crisis of rising global inequality and discrimination against Africa. 

Justice for Africa: Don't Cut Our Future is an African youth- and student-led global campaign demanding an end to this injustice.
