The Pan African Youth Parliament is a center for African youths to gather and discuss ideas, plans, and solutions geared toward restoring Africa’s former glory. The continent’s population is quite young – the majority are between 18 and 35 years old. They are brimming with potential but are faced with numerous challenges such as unemployment, poverty, illiteracy, inequality, and disunity.
The Pan African Youth Parliament will serve as a place for the African youth to participate in the development of strategic plans aimed at improving the continent. Besides implementing projects aligned with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), they will work in tandem with political office holders to ensure they deliver on the promise of a peaceful and prosperous Africa.
One of the biggest hindrances to African youth development is the absence of unity. The African Development International Youth Movement Organization (ADIYMO) aims to tackle this. It will work with representatives from all across Africa to come up with goals specific to the needs of the African continent and in line with the MDGs.
In contribution to the millennium development goals, ADIYMO will recruit capable African youth volunteers who will work to ensure the attainment of predetermined targets. The parliament will also support, quicken, and advocate for “agenda 2063,” – the Africa we want.
