African Youth News: 2 July
A month ago we opened the 10th OGM in Dakar. We focused our reflections on the point of non-return and reminded ourselves of our journey from Accra 2010 to Dakar 2015. Our non-return is our shared vision of Empowering Young People for the African Renaissance, our core identity and our resolve to move toward the sustainability of our YMCAs. We believe in the Renaissance of our continent and that the empowerment of youth is the only way to achieve the Renaissance. We believe African YMCAs are uniquely positioned to drive the youth component of “The Africa We Want”, the Renaissance agenda of the Africa Union. We believe in ourselves as catalysts of these transformations and we invite you to believe and Siyahamba with us.
