The project

In accordance with the goals of Agenda 2063 of the African Union, the project is aimed at strengthening the civil society and the African policy promoting and strengthening the participation and representation of the youth in regional institutional contests. This is done in respect and favor of the implementation both of the goals of Agenda 2030 and the guidelines proposed by the African Leadership Forum and by the Interuniversity Council for East Africa.

The urgent task is to prepare the youngest generation for leadership, instilling the culture of social commitment and responsibility. This is how the idea to create on the African continent educational programs which help to equip young people with skills and knowledge to enrich their minds and talents to reintroduce the values and the potential of the continent, arose.

The idea is to give priority to the youth in the development of their initiatives in order to create opportunities for training to get the youngsters ready to face daily challenges, keeping the fundamental values of their communities, namely solidarity and fraternity, as their touchstone, respecting the young people’s skills and enhancing the economic and social resources at their disposal.
