The Thomson Reuters Foundation and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are offering a six-day workshop for 12 young African leaders who are champions for global development issues. The goal is to develop 12 great storytellers, and so the workshop will focus on communication skills such as public speaking and presentation skills, effective use of social media, and more.

Generation Africa aims to help young Africans whose personal experiences have shaped their determination to help others facing challenges across the continent to tell their stories globally. If you know someone with a remarkable story, Generation Africa would love to help them share it.

The workshop organizers are particularly seeking individuals with a personal story to share that highlights the need to take action around global health, family planning, nutrition, agriculture, financial inclusion, and gender equality.
