Youth voices are

More than half of the continent’s population falls within the youth age-group, and that represents both an opportunity and a threat for the continent.

cooperation can unlock
unprecedented growth
Many African countries have experienced the same trajectory of pre-colonization, colonization, struggle for independence, and the quest for self-determination post-independence. We believe that through this shared history, the future of Africa can equally be defined by shared ideas, ideologies, and systems, regardless of borders.
