LEAD Africa Campaign

Through a national and international campaign envisioned to create awareness of the African Union (AU), and its strategic initiatives, LEAD Africa aims to promote intergenerational dialogues between youth and leaders, promote and connect African diaspora organizations with those in the continent and engage African youth in the diaspora, women of African descent, the African Diplomatic Corps, policymakers, governments, and all the stakeholders who have an interest in the development of Africa.
1+1 Million by 2021
LEAD will also support the AU Office of Youth Envoy (OYE) action plan on the four pillars of Education, Employment, Entrepreneurship, and Engagement for the “1 +1 million by 2021 initiative.”
