Former Secretary General Momodou Sabally is set to address over 1300 students and youths across the continent and beyond as the Africa Students and Youth Summit commences in Kigali this week.
Organised by the All-African Students Union (AASU) under the auspices of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Rwanda, the 7th Africa Students and Youth Summit will be held in Kigali, July 24 to 29, 2018.
The summit is to provide a platform for students and youths to meet their ministers, senior government officials, and other relevant stakeholders to network and exchange ideas. This forum, through a mixture of plenary sessions and interactive workshops, will bring to the fore crucial issues affecting youths and students with a view to explore the linkages between panafricanism and current Continental and global development agendas and how young people can be engaged as strategic partners to drive these key development paradigms.
As part of this summit, Mr Sabally will speak at the high-level dialogue to be held at the Kigali Conference and Exhibition Village on the theme “African Cultural Renaissance: What the Youths Must Learn from History”.
Well known for his dedication to Youth Empowerment and motivational speaking tours, Sabally addressed a similar platform in Nigeria last year where he was invited as Chief Guest Speaker at the official launch of the African Youth Network (AYAN) in Ilorin, Kwara State.
