“Half of the world’s population is under 25 years old. Therefore, young people are not just the beneficiaries of the 2030 Agenda, but rather, they hold the key to its success.” – Ahmad Alhendawi
In Africa, the Golden Heart Foundation is not sitting back. We are eager to see African youth developed, empowered and mobilized to drive sustainable development goals.
This year, we are hosting the 2nd Edition of the Pan-African #NationalYouthSummit tagged“Harnessing the Untapped Generation. This year’s summit is design to train a minimum of 15,000 African Youth leaders across the 15 countries in ECOWAS and other countries in Africa.
These youths will be equipped to go back to their societies and communities to likewise raise and empower leaders. This will evidently help fast track the development of the sensitive demography of Africa and push Africa to a healthier, safer and more just future.
Africa Youth has been at the receiving end of extreme hunger, homelessness, nakedness, industrial pollution, rape; abuse and trafficking but hey, we the African youths can lead a global drive to break the patterns of the past and set Africa on course of freedom, wealth and happiness.
The African youth are unfortunately the poorest in the world, and if African youths are the future of tomorrow, it means that poverty is the future of Africa! We must stop this. And now is the time.
This is the burden driving the Golden Heart Foundation to organize this very sensitive summit coming up on the 22nd to the 24th of September, 2016 at the International Conference Centre Abuja.
Registration for the summit is free via www.nysafrica.org
