Democracy Africa Youth Parliament Committee on Africa and Implementation of Agenda 2063 initiates Social Advocacy and a Youth-driven action on Pan Africanism
The beauty of Africa lies in its rich cultural diversity and inclusion. Africa is just like a billionaire that is ignorant of the value of her wealth in the bank. Understanding the beautiful concept of Pan Africanism will stimulate a new drive to cherish our rich history, common identity, aspirations, cultural heritage, consciousness and respect for religious diversity.
The Africa and Implementation of Agenda 2063 Committee under the Umbrella organization of Democracy Africa Youth Parliament (DAYP) condemns and is disheartened that we still hear of xenophobic attacks, terrorists’ attacks, cattle rearers clashing with farmers, tribal wars and nepotism at present. We must take a mitigating and adaptive measures to address the growing increase of these sinister attacks. Present African leaders must engage in an inter-generational dialogue with Youths to build a continent that is united and jealously protects its identity and culture.
African values of family, community, hard work, merits, mutual respect and social cohesion should be richly entrenched in our new pathway identity. While our Leaders ensure a total repatriation and safeguard of all our stolen culture, heritage, artefacts. 50 years from now, let’s create a future that our children would be proud of.
Agenda 2063 will surely navigate us through that pathway whiles fully plugged in the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda 2030 and beyond. Africa and Implementation of Agenda 2063 Committee will continue to fully engage the Youth and all stakeholders and Partner organizations to actively spearhead their collective engagement in the realization of “The Africa We Want”. To this end there will be widespread social advocacy initiative and inter-states engagement whiles running social campaigns with hash tag #BeginsWithYou #Agenda2063Committee #KnowTheAgenda2063 #AIA2063
