We are aware of the millions of children out of school in Africa. And we know that few children that are in schools are experiencing learning crisis. In African Youth Architects, we are determined to proffer lasting solutions to all these problems through evidence-based projects. With research, issues affecting quality education in our respective countries can be identified, and subsequently, the attention of the department of education and lawmakers would be directed to address those issues.

We have oriented the parents about their roles in enhancing the education of their children by actively assisting them in learning.  As of the end of 2019, we orient more than 1000 parents in over 6 villages in the West Coast Region in The Gambia.
