Why Africa For Africa?

Africa is endowed with a highly energetic and intelligent youth populace. With almost half a billion (500,000,000) people shown to be between the ages of 15 and 35 years, the continent is reported to have the youngest population in the world. However, this young population is scarcely harnessed in the socio-political and socio-economic developement of Africa, as their participation in these areas have been infinitesimal and relatively negligible.

This has robbed the consitituent states of the African Continent an opportunity for true transformation and sustainable development, which all come through fresh ideas, innovation and strategic execution.

The Africa for Africa Youth Initiative holds a valid assertion that the young African populace is indispensable in our journey of sustainable development and that the seemingly insurmountable socio-economic and socio-political challenges in Africa can be solved by young, innovative and indigenous Africans.

This organization seeks to influence the young African mind to believe, aspire and contribute to the socio-economic and socio-political development of African Nations.
Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Build resilient infrastructure, ensure inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.
Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development.

This initiative is inspired by the vision and passion of the world renowned minister, Rev. Dr. Chris Oyakhilome DSc DD. (President, Loveworld Inc.), whose famous saying “Nigeria will only be built by Nigerians” forms an unassailable driving force for us from which we infer that “Africa will only be built by Africans”.
