Outgoing and New African Region Youth Action Movement (YAM) leaders. Congratulations to the Tanzanian representative Godlove Mwasamila (3rd from left), selected as a YAM Vice President in East Africa Sub-Region
The Youth Forum Meeting was held in Nairobi form the 27th through 28th June 2017. The meeting comprised of a youth engagement session whereby emphasis was placed on youth being involved in the planning phase of developmental projects rather than only being part of implementation. Each African region member association presented a report of their activities together with thanking International Planned Parenthood (IPPF) for their support. Members associations also presented challenges that they encounter in youth activities and they way they mitigate these challenges. Special attention was placed on a learning session which taught the youth how to undertake fund raising so as to be able to fund their own projects effectively and how IPPF can be part of the support.
The meeting concluded with an election of the African Region and Sub-Region leaders whereby Godlove Mwasamila the Tanzania YAM representative was elected Vice President of YAM in East Sub-Region of Africa and youth were able to give their opinion for the sustainability of youth associations.
