#Youthcan by Lizz Ntonjira
A collection of powerful, inspiring and challenging stories from youth breaking barriers across Africa.
50 Empowering Stories from across 22 Sub Sahara Africa countries told by 29 Women and 21 Men.
For the majority of young people, growing up in Africa is a contact sport, only without the funding and technical support. For many of them, the journey to adulthood is like a slow run through a field of high grass. By the time they get there, they are bloody and bruised by a relentless lashing of the blades. And then in young adulthood, they come to a crossroads. They can either let their wounds turn into battle-hardened- scars, or they can remain honest and open allowing their afflictions to become the impetus for change and further still, transformation.
