Maurice uses this space to network with the world and share both his social and professional experiences. This blog is designed to inspire young people to cherish excellence, and spark their interest in self reliance rather than overtly depending on pay slips, handouts and mothly wages. This is in cognisance of the fact that unemployment is the single greatest challenge facing young people on the continent of Africa, and the statistics are growing worse with the youth bulge – over 65% of Africa’s population are youth between the ages of 15-35. This space is therefore oriented to informing, motivating and inspiring Africa’s youth to take charge of their lives under the theme: “To Inspire is to Empower”.
