Each school will identify five of the most pressing challenges facing the young in Africa. The top 10 challenges identified will then be researched in depth. A report will be produced to be given to the Prime Minister. Organised by Plan UK, the commission's website will go live on June 16 and be a forum for children's views on Africa.
