Start Your Business in 30 Days Even If You Don’t Have An Idea

The Blog4Dev contest was launched in 2014 by the World Bank Kenya office. It is an annual writing contest, inviting young people to weigh in on a topic critical to their country’s economic development. The competition is a way to engage Africa’s youth and provide a platform for them to share their view and solutions about development topics that are important to them. In 2018, it became a regional competition; open to young citizens from all 48 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Basically, Blog4Dev winners contribute to the blogging community through original content posted on the Youth Transforming Africa blog platform.

Youth Transforming Africa (YTA) is a World Bank-supported youth engagement initiative that aims to engage more African youth in the thinking and discussions on development in Africa.
