Feb 13, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– International Youth for Africa (IYA) is a non-governmental organization (NGO) and nonprofit agency. It was founded on 2nd March 2015, after attending two
workshops in Kampala, Uganda and Nairobi, Kenya. It’s under the funding of Public International Law and Policy Group (PILPG) with support of United States Agency International Development (USAID). It was aimed to respond to the increasing demand for collective platform for research, training and policy advocacy for young people by young people in Africa, South Sudanese Youth and beyond. This statement is to inform the General Public that due to the registration (reservation of name) process in the Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs in Uganda, the NGOs/CSOs in Kampala and myself and officials of the Youth Action Development Network (YADN) had to change the name from Youth Action Development Network to International Youth for Africa in here in Kampala, Uganda. This does not affect our Vision, Mission and Objectives already set under Youth Action Development Network.
IYA vision is to see a peaceful community where the youths are fully empowered in all aspects of life.
IYA mission is to empower the youths, organizations, institutions, communities and vulnerable groups through initiatives that enhance sustainable development and peace.
