About Us

The Breaking Down Borders Africa Initiative is a pan-African platform led by African youth for the benefit of African youth. The Initiative is inspired by the vision of Enabling African youth to connect and collaborate towards the prosperity of the continent. To this end, the Initiative is invested in bringing all Africans together, to dissect the issues they are faced with and to find solutions that can be applied in resolving the challenges identified.

These identified challenges are what inspired the Breaking Down Borders Africa Tour which has so far visited ten African countries with the purpose of seeking youth collaborative opportunities, advocating for quality-accessible education and youth entrepreneurship while exploring the destination countries’ arts, heritage and tourism.

HAVING ENGAGED YOUTH FROM DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS ACROSS THE CONTINENT, THE HINDRANCES MENTIONED ABOVE WERE AFFIRMED TO BE CHALLENGES THEY ALSO FACED AS YOUNG AFRICANS.

It was clear to the Foundation that there was a demand for African youth to have a platform where young Africans from respective fields and backgrounds can collaborate and access each other to make sustainable developments on the continent. The perfect response to this desire and need was the Africa Month Youth Summit.
