The theme of Pope Francis’ video this month, is young people in Africa.
Pope Francis says: “Africa is a continent with enormous potential. Its young people are its future. A future which, if it is accompanied by education and work possibilities, is splendid.
“Africa is a wealthy continent, and its greatest, most valuable resource is its young people.
They should be able to choose between letting themselves be overcome by difficulty or transforming the difficulty into an opportunity.
The most effective way to help them in this choice is to invest in their education.
If young people don’t have the possibility of education, what future can they have?
If young people don’t have a job, what future awaits them?
Let us pray that young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries”
