NELSON KWAJE

Activist, Digital Media Strategist & Entrepreneur
I use three words to describe what I do: People, Technology, and Transformation. My day to day job is very diverse and engaging; most of the time I am on my laptop corresponding with team members and coordinating projects. Aside from that, I am an ICT professional by training and my main skill is in Web development, computer networks, and digital media (social media) strategy. As an Entrepreneur and a young person affected by conflict, I am uniquely placed to understand the needs of underprivileged youth and displaced people. I do understand the need for building a sustainable and a peaceful environment that will enable the youth to thrive and seek a better future. The below excerpt from the FINAL REPORT OF THE AFRICAN UNION COMMISSION OF INQUIRY ON SOUTH SUDAN has made me rethink the role of the youth in South Sudan and commit to spending my time working on solutions that will educate and empower the young people in my country. "In the context of South Sudan, the youth provide a vital link between political/national conflict and community conflicts. The presence of a large pool of youth [reportedly more than 70% of the population] who are uneducated, unemployed and probably unemployable, armed and militarized not only creates insecurity at the local level, but also provides (in the context of the current conflict)an explanation as to why the conflict that started in Juba quickly.
