“East Africa's population of children under the age of fifteen increased from 53.3 million in 2005 to 61 million in 2010. Children made up 45% of East Africa's population in 2005 and 44% in 2010. Looking ahead to 2030, the estimated population of children under the age of 15 will be 96 million, making up 41% of the region's 237 million people. East Africa's youths (aged 15 to 34 years), was estimated at 48 million or 35% of the total population in 2010. By 2030, the 82 million young people will still account for 35% of the total population. In total, East Africa's 109 million children and youth made up 80% of the total population in 2010 and this population will grow to 178 million by 2030, and its share will remain a significant 75% of the region's total population.”
