The YouthConnekt Africa Summit 2018 under the theme, “Connekting youth for continental transformation” was held 8-10 October 2018 at the Kigali International Convention Centre in Kigali, Rwanda. It brought together young men and women from all over Africa and beyond. The Summit focused on the role of the youth in developing the continent as well as curbing the challenges faced by the young people every day.
The first inaugural continental Summit was held in 2017. It resulted in the adoption of three main recommendations; scaling up of the YouthConnekt to the regional level, establishment of the YouthConnekt Hub and the Empowerment Fund to finance youth empowerment initiatives across the continent.
The 2018 Summit was officially opened by the Prime Minister of Rwanda, Mr. Édouard Ngirente and it attracted more than 3000 young people from the African Continent gathered to discuss major issues that they face.
