As part of activities marking this year's International Youth Day (IYD) commemoration, the United Nations organized a special conference to deliberate on 'the Intersection between Education and Global Opportunities.'
The event held at the United Nations' headquarters in Africa, located in Nairobi, Kenya, was attended by an Africa for Africa Youth, representing the organisation.
The International Youth Day (IYD) was instituted by the United Nations and is celebrated annually by youth-based organisations and government agencies across the globe on August 12. It was designated with the intent to draw attention to a given set of cultural and legal issues surrounding youth. This year, the theme of the International Youth Day is Transforming Education".
The Africa for Africa Youth Initiative, as an active youth organization in Africa, has taken the lead in marking the International Youth Day 2019, with an engaging line-up of impactful activities including a Global Peace Walk in several countries of the world, including Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Cyprus, and much more.
The A4A Youth Initiative is raising young people who are lending a voice to create the Africa of our Dreams!
More to Come! Stay tuned for more updates on the IYD 2019 activities.
