Africa Elevate was founded by a group of young African academics who are executives in various organizations across the continent who served voluntarily for NAYD as Research leads for their countries. In this launch issue, Africa Elevate brings together voices from different African countries including Nigeria, Sudan, Uganda, Nigeria, Benin, Botswana, Rwanda, Malawi, Michigan and South Africa. Young people report on issues affecting rural communities in their countries; but most importantly they give a glimpse of what these communities would look like if these challenges are addressed collaboratively with the local community members by demonstrating successful development models. This is, without a doubt, the right step towards a more participatory and democratic development that values people’s experiences and local knowledge. The book is a summary of the South African land issue, Botswana's Bokaa village successful development model, Energy Poverty Sustainable Solutions for the local Communities in Sudan, socio-economic conditions of women extracting salt from Djègbadji Benin, Youth in Agriculture in Africa, Improving Youth Livelihoods in Communities in Iganga and many more.
