FOLLOW AFRICAN LEADERS FACTORY INITIATIVE!
A pan-African fellowship program, set up in 2017, aimed at meeting the perspective needs of young people between the ages of 18 and 25. Through the transfer of knowledge, know-how, and knowing how to be together, ALFI and its partners build skills and entrepreneurial spirit among young people with the ambition to strengthen their employability and competitiveness through practical training to get the maximum onboard in a productive job.
It’s the first online incubation platform in Senegal and its aim is to incubate online beneficiaries of the ALFI Fellowship Program in an innovative approach throughout their lives. Thereby, young people can get trained, design their project, connect to their peers, learn many topics strengthen their technical and financial skills. It shares opportunities in real-time and has many groups related to local committees.
Each year, ALFI celebrates the occasion of Youth International Day with a pan-African event gathering hundreds of youth people across the country called the Youth Assembly Summit. It’s a great opportunity to hold a consultation with organization youth-led, decision-makers, artists, journalists, diplomats, governments, ministries raising youth issues, and solutions recommended to be considered in development programs.
In Senegal and everywhere in Africa, young people are asking for more participation in decision-making bodies and their facilitation in politics. Global Youth Voices allows young people to make pledges on a lot of topics that concern them through an article that they can share to inform their peers. The priority articles are also shared through newsletters to governments, the United Nations, NGOs, youth coalitions, etc.
To maximize the SDG Summit’s impact, the Secretary General is convening an SDG Action Weekend, which will generate opportunities for stakeholders, UN entities, and Member States to convene inside the United Nations Headquarters and set out specific commitments and contributions to drive SDG transformation between now and 2030.
The SDG Action Weekend will consist of the SDG Mobilization Day on Saturday, 16 September, and the SDG Acceleration Day on Sunday, 17 September at UNHQ in New York.
Commit to action: Mobilizing voluntary commitments to action across countries, sectors and stakeholders, aimed at accelerated implementation and improved impact towards achieving SDG 6 and other water-related goals and targets. Voluntary commitments will be gathered, showcased and tracked on a dedicated platform.
The moderated event will start with a statement by ALFI, UN, a Civil Society Representative followed by three panels moderated by each of the young leaders and social entrepreneurs, national and international experts, civil society representatives, development partners who will address the following:
– Water for climate, resilience, and the environment: source to sea, biodiversity, climate, resilience and DRR (SDGs 6.5, 6.6, 7, 11.5, 13, 14, 15)
