Sustaining the Emerging Powerhouse

Sustaining the Emerging Powerhouse

Africa is without doubt a continent that has gone through tremendous changes in the last few decades with borders shifting, new wealth found and some lost again, governments rose and fell, and most importantly the enormous growth, both in the number of people and wealth. While the population increase affects all, the wealth is yet to be distributed evenly between countries but also within.

The number of people living in Africa, currently about 1.1 billion people and reaching 4.2 billion by 2100, already demand a much better infrastructure than currently available in wide parts of the continent. While many parts of the world struggle to reach even the most marginal GDP growth in the current economic climate, African countries in general, seem to be on a steady path to improvement. This is a very welcome development; however, also begs the question how to sustain it in the future.

Wealth and resources, and more specifically, the management and distribution of them, require a highly trained and educated workforce. While most governments have done a lot of work to improve access to education to the most people, the increase of population demands a great investment in the schooling facilities of current and future generations.

Unicaf University’s (UU) opening of its Malawi campus aims to transform Malawi into an educational centre of excellence in the Africa region. With Learning Centres in Mauritius, Nigeria, Somalia, Uganda, Zimbabwe and Zambia, most Africans now can take advantage of studying with UU without leaving their region. Being able to study Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate degrees, students will have the opportunity to choose between studying on-campus or online, also utilising the Learning Centres as desired.

In cooperation with UNICAF, generous Scholarships are now available for all UU degrees. Check if you are eligible and apply today at
