Through our APAS program, we:
⦁ Recognise the importance and role Africa’s youth can play in the Africa of 2063

⦁ Affirm the importance of strengthening governance and democratic values right from infancy.

⦁ Create environments in which young minds can see the value of collaboration and co-operation, two qualities that are needed for peaceful co-existence. We are of the view that by assembling individuals of diverse backgrounds and identities, who can engage openly and respectfully with contentious and challenging ideas and each other, is one of the most practical ways of silencing the guns.

⦁ We support a vision of pluralistic societies that embrace differences and negotiate their boundaries through constructive political, social and personal dialogue and relationships.
⦁ We build a multinational, intergenerational community of emerging and established leaders who share the Humanity in Action values.
