IMF and the Youth

The International Monetary Fund listens to the concerns, expectations, and suggestions from young leaders of the world about the future of their various regions and how the IMF can serve their countries better. The IMF sees this as an important mission to actively engage with the youth—tomorrow’s leaders—and to motivate their thinking at an early stage on policy measures that affect them. This is particularly crucial at a time when challenges stemming from the financial crisis have had a high impact on unemployment for young people around the world.

As part of this initiative and effort, the Fund continues to conduct a variety of activities and dialogue both in Washington and in the regions with youth from different disciplines to exchange ideas and views. These events, including a voice at the Spring and Annual Meetings of the IMF and the World Bank, help the institution gain a better understanding of the challenges youth face. Some of these events also provide a platform for the youth themselves to come together and interact with one another and contribute by lending their voices to the dialog on the global situation and their future.

IMF will also engage Africa and Kenyan youth too in their agenda.Please find below a link to their previous youth initiatives.

Letter to young Kenyans – Peter Kenneth

Published by Capital FM on 1st December 2015.

Peter Kenneth was a former presidential aspirant in the 2013 elections.

Obama came and spoke to you.
The Pope has come and spoken to you.
There is no one left to come and speak to you. It is time for you to decide; the time for you to act. Do not let the words and encouragement of these two leaders go to waste.
Both President Obama and His Holiness were united on one point: that you (and all young people) are responsible for the greatness of this country; you can change this country but not with tribalism in your hearts and minds, nor with hatred, or divisions.
Division is the only thing standing in the way of the greatness of this country and the greatness of this generation. It is the only thing standing between this generation and the fight against poverty, disease and corruption.
Obama spoke about your unlimited potential and how Kenya stands at a crossroad a moment of both promise and peril.
The choice between which of those paths we take is yours. He urged unity and a respect for a person based on who they are not where they come from.
Kenya needs an answer from you now.
The Pope was much more direct and clear. Tribalism equals destruction. His Holiness was also clear that you- have a choice to make and a path to choose.
