Future Africa Ambassadors

The Future Africa Ambassadors is a network of passionate youth leaders across the continent who lead advocacy projects and campaign actively for the implementation of development policies at local, national, regional and continental levels.

Ambassadors are provided with an advocacy toolkit and supported to take action to sensitize local populations about active citizen engagement and collaboration. Each year, Future Africa recruits and trains new ambassadors as part of an audacious mission to have an active community of ambassadors in 100 African cities by 2023.
