The Africa Matters Initiative (NPC 2018/033657/08) is a youth-led organisation committed to upskilling and empowering African youth through leadership, social entrepreneurship and advocacy. We have impacted the lives of over 18 000 African youth and diaspora through our Schools Leadership Development Program (SLDP), Young Leadership Development Program (YLDP), Africa Matters Ambassadors Program (AMAP) and Events. Our events feature networking evenings, workshops on African leadership and women empowerment, school talks on youth empowerment, annual Summits titled ‘Towards a Better Africa’, and an active online platform for robust dialogue. We exist to upskill and empower youth to better their communities. The Africa Matters mandate is as follows ● Change the African Narrative – By engaging in dialogue on African identity to reshape the way we look at this identity. ● Upskilling African Youth – With a youth population of over 230 million youth, it is pertinent that these youth are upskilled and educated to be change-makers to make a tangible impact. ● Create platforms for critical engagement – By critically engaging over important issues to discover African solutions to African problems.
