The World Bank’s Africa Region and its Social Development Department are launching a Story Competition to identify positive role models for African youth that illustrate a #AfricaCAN spirit.

If you are under 40 years old, carrying out great work transforming the lives of socially excluded people in your community—for example, street children, disabled persons, albinos, and in some societies, twins— in Africa, we’d like to hear your story. 

PRIZE
You may become one of our Social Inclusion Heroes, and you could win a trip to Washington, D.C., and other prizes.
