For a decade, Africa has had a steady growth rate of 6%. But signals to the contrary are emerging, raising doubts about the continuation of this trend and even leading to pessimism about future years on the part of some analysts.

For his part, Donald Kaberuka, President of the African Development Bank Group (AfDB), does not share this Afro-pessimism. He made this absolutely clear on Monday, March 16 in Geneva at the opening of the Africa CEO Forum 2015.

The high-level forum for the continent’s business leaders, leaders from the world of finance and policy-makers is organized by the Paris-based press group Jeune Afrique, with support from the AfDB.

What does corruption mean to you?

“It means to give money, to be sexually harassed, to be absent from school and then to pay teachers to say you were present,” said Floriane Masso, a student of a government school of Bamendjou. 

Masso is one of many students who are part of Clubs d’Education Civique et d’Integration Nationale (Cecine) established under the ZENU Network. With financing of about $15,000 from a Development Marketplace competition organized under a $1.8 million “Banking on Change” Governance Program in Cameroon, the ZENU Network set out to fight corruption in 16 high schools across 8 districts in the Western parts of Cameroon.

Can the humble shea nut help empower women economically? It can, at least in Burkina Faso where the government is working with the International Trade Centre​ to scale up the role the shea nut plays for the empowerment of women in the country.

"The best way to raise humanity is to empower women", says Global Youth Ambassador for A World at School. 

Participating at a high-level #CSW59  side event on ensuring the emerging leadership of Africa's young women and girls organized by OSAA, the United Nations Office of the Special Adviser on Africa , he made the participants laugh when he pointed out he was the only man on the panel. 

He's also the 2015 Winner of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II's Young Leadership Award.
