development and hopefully work together wherever possible. NAYD thus creates
a platform to create opportunities for African youths through sustainable
development and involving young people in an African network to preach
the message of peace, equality, and the UN SDGs. NAYD wants to
help young people in Africa be the change by encouraging and supporting them to become
activists for the promotion of sustainable development, social justice, gender
equality, and education for African children and peer groups across Africa.
NAYD’s vision is to help make Africa a safer and more

hard work, and togetherness for all African youths exploring meaningful
opportunities for our future generation.
