‘This Time We Are Young’ is an on-going documentation of the changing demographics on the African continent, from South Sudan to Uganda, Kenya and beyond. This is the world’s youngest continent, with 60% of its people under 25.
Every other person I know is young. I am young. Yet in many ways the continent remains stubbornly inhospitable to our rising generation. This project is a way of both collaborating with my peers, and exploring my own reality of growing up in Africa – our hopes, our challenges, our future. After all, we will be the ones to define the next chapter of this continent’s story.
