Africa Day 2017

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Theme of the year Africa Day 2017 is “Harnessing the Demographic Dividend through investments in Youth”

Africa Day or African Liberation Day is observed as a celebration of African unity.

On 25 May 1963, Africa made history with the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) which brought the Continent together.

Since then, the 25 May has been celebrated widely across the world particularly in Africa to signify Africa’s identity and unity

The African union (AU) is now in full swing driving Agenda 2063 to realize the African people’s aspirations.

Aspiration 6 of Agenda 2063 particularly talks of “an Africa whose development is people-driven, relying on the potential of African People, especially its women, youth and caring for children”.
