Amanda Mbali Dlamini , South Africa
As the youth of Africa and future leaders of the continent we recognise our duty to the growth and development of Africa. We are forming networks, discussing Africa's issues, finding African solutions and enlightening each other on our various countries and over and above that, allowing the African voice to be heard. We are optimistic and also pragmatic in our approach. Making a tangible difference to the lives of all we touch.
We are a group of graduates from the Thabo Mbeki African Leadership Academy. We formed The African Pioneer in 2012 and have been involved in various projects across the African continent over the years. We were invited twice to the AU Youth Day in Addis Ababa (2014-2015). We launched initiatives to promote #TheGirlChild in SA and Ethiopia (2015-2016), We were invited by the African Union for strategic consultations as they develop their long-term Youth agenda (2017).
