We support such individuals, and their works from the community level all the way to the national level. We believe so much in their relentless efforts in making the world a better place for its citizenry, and we appreciate them for that.

Some ways in which we put these aims into action include:

Promoting Access to Education and Mitigating Learning Crisis: 

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.

Education Promotion Programme for Parents: 

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.

Teacher Training Program:

Our program to train teachers in Africa. Children are not learning. Teacher training is the key.

Expected Results

  • Improved Learning Outcomes

Future Plans

10 schools were surveyed in Kanifing Municipality, and West Coast Region in The Gambia to know their educational needs. Our study shows that teachers need basic computer application training program. We are calling on all the change agents in the world to support the implementation of this laudable project, as we intend to execute it this year 2020 in The Gambia.

Give a Child Education:

We bring together more than 100 youth leaders, parents, students, teachers, policy makers,  government, and non-governmental organizations to embark on project(s) that would improve the access to basic education for children around the world.

We identifies the need to design Young African Leaders Awards. Every year, we honor and appreciate the exemplary achievements and contributions that young people have made in Africa and beyond
