Youth, Morality and Education in Africa: Confronting Emerging Challenges is a book that seeks to provide a holistic approach to understanding the unique challenges impacting the moral formation of youths in Africa. It draws from philosophical, theological, traditional and practical perspectives on ethics in Africa. The book touches on critical issues that impact youth morality, from ICT, the media to Covid 19 Pandemic. As a panacea, the book points to a synergy of family, religious and educational institutions, the media and government in youth moral formation in Africa. In this book, Sr. Dr. Justina avoids mere abstraction or prescriptions about youth and morality. She instead seeks to provide practical ways to integrate the different approaches to ethical formation of young people in Africa.
