About the Africa We Want Essay Competition
The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation, in partnership with The Raphaelyn Foundation, Inc-Liberia and African Artist Peace Initiative (AAPI) has launched the 2nd Edition of “The Africa We Want Youth Essay Campaign” to support, promote and encourage young people’s participation in Agenda 2063- the blueprint and master plan for the transformation of Africa into the global powerhouse of the future. Agenda2063: The Africa We Want is Africa’s strategic framework that seeks to deliver on its goal for inclusive and sustainable development and is a concrete manifestation of the pan-Africa drive for unity, self-determination, freedom, progress and collective prosperity pursued under Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance. Agenda2063 clearly demonstrates the commitment of African People to the Pan African Vision of “An integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens, representing a dynamic force in the international arena”.
