Summary

20 South African teenage pilots are hoping to make aviation history by flying from Cape to Cairo in an aircraft they assembled themselves. CRIDOC in Malawi is working with Simon Manda, the Media Liaison for the Challenge in Johannesburg, South Africa, to raise funds for equipment and costs. Organized by the U-Dream Foundation's Megan Werner (17), the excursion will see the teens charter a course that will cut across several African cities and towns, from 12 June 2019 and will take over a month.

Challenge

60% of the entire Africa's population is aged below 25, making it the youngest continent in the world. There is a crisis in the lack of formal skilled employment across Africa, which is exacerbated by both poverty and the addition of 10 -12 million youths to the labor market each year. As a result, most youths tend to experience low self-esteem, as well as other negative social, emotional, and behavioral outcomes. Radical interventions to address these crises is not an option. It is a necessity!

Solution

The immediate objective of the U-Dream's groundbreaking project is to engage youths in different targeted destinations for a "Dream African Child" motivation engagement. The long-term overall goal is to help foster visionary thinking, inspiring young people to pursue their dreams while promoting and supporting innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship. The program creates safe real-world experiences, specifically designed to discover young people's strengths and to accelerate their growth.

Long-Term Impact

While it'll be the 1st time to work with CRIDOC in Malawi in a partnership established through its Media Liaison, Simon, U-Dream's mission is to leverage on such collaborations to uplift, empower, equip and transform the lives of thousands of youths throughout Africa and the world by dreaming and achieving the impossible together, and succeeding beyond expectations. Through training, coaching and motivational talks/engagement, U-Dream equips youths with success tools to create a powerful future.
