One Young World Enterprising Futures Ambassadors

DMFA Scholars 2023





Underemployment and the lack of employment opportunities are among the most significant socio-economic and security challenges we face, partially brought on due to the youth bulge present in many countries around the world. Beyond its immediate impacts on young people, youth unemployment can exacerbate poverty, violent extremism, political instability, drug abuse and crime.

The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) prioritises improving young people’s prospects in a number of developing countries and fragile states by supporting local entrepreneurs and job creation. The Dutch MFA and Orange Corners believe that One Young World offers a great opportunity for young people to expand their skillsets, connect with other changemakers around the world, and become engaged with, get involved in and build upon successful youth-led initiatives.

That is why One Young World has collaborated with the Dutch MFA and Orange Corners to elevate the work of impressive young entrepreneurs. The Enterprising Futures Programme will continue to work to improve young people’s prospects and increase youth engagement in a number of developing countries and fragile states by supporting local entrepreneurs and job creation.
