The fourth edition of the Youth Day of Service (YDoS), a Pan-African youth-led social impact campaign has been launched.
The initiative had been unveiled through a partnership between Development organisation LEAP Africa and material science manufacturer DOW Africa.
LEAP Africa Executive Director, Kehinde Ayeni, stressed the importance of fostering partnerships to bring the achievement of the goals closer.
Ayeni said in a statement in Lusaka on Wednesday that their strategic pillar was to raise talents for the actualisation of the SDGs.
“This campaign is a demonstration of our commitment to youth-led actions for Sustainable Development across Africa.
“We believe in the power, voices, numbers and agency of young people coupled with engagement platforms to retool youth with the skills that can shape SDGs implementation across the continent. We are fostering partnerships to bring the achievement of the goals closer,” Ayeni said.
DOW Africa Public Affairs Lead-Africa, Mumbi Keega, committed the organisation to fostering positive change and building resilient and sustainable communities in Africa.
Keega said through its partnership with LEAP Africa, was supporting the Youth Day of Service (YDoS) initiative, which empowered young people to use their skills and talents to make a difference in their communities.
“We believe that this can only be achieved by working together with the African youth, who are vital to promoting social welfare.
“We are proud to be a part of YDoS and to support the next generation of African leaders who are working to create a more sustainable and equitable future for all,” Keega said.
