The Organisation of African Youth (OAYouth) was formed to take the role of the youth platform for information exchange, forum for debate on African issues and a network of future political, corporate, academic, literary, religious and traditional leaders in all African contexts. This was in conformance to the ratification of the African Youth Charter.
OAYouth is the sole cohesive umbrella organization of all African youths. The organization stands parallel to African Union, representing African Youths on any summits where policies affecting the continent are convened.
OAYouth is therefore the perennial network of African youths, encouraging common thinking and understanding on issues affecting the continent. OAYouth seeks to bring together non-partisan individuals committed to democratic thinking and radical change in matters of governance and to vocally oppose the culture of dictatorships in Africa.
The African youth Organization will engage youth to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS in many forms, including drama, theatre, music and Peer to Peer forums.
