Why Ideas for Action Africa?

Idea for Action Africa shares similar aspirations and believes with me: to be part of those who transform the face of Africa; to give the youth a voice in an uncommon way and to help them realise that they can be solutions providers.      

My ambition for Ideas for Action Africa 

I believe and know that Ideas for Action Africa through youth action will help to fasten the dissemination of both the GOALS AND OBJECTIVES of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Africa and the world at large. It is very important that as many (if not all) people as possible in Africa, are aware of SDGs and I4A Competition and the need for joint participation toward achieving the 2030 agenda. In the nearest future, Ideas for Action Africa will be that youth voice the World has been waiting for. It will help to pull the numerous, raw, creative and feasible ideas that dominate the minds of Young Africans.
