The Young African Leaders Forum (YALF) is an independent pan-African organisation whose utmost objective is to effectuate sustainable development in every African nation. We achieve this by detecting the root causes of Africa’s developmental problems, researching and proffering workable solutions to them as well as executing these strategic solutions. We also work to empower African young people to participate actively in the society so that they can improve their own lives by representing and solving their needs whilst also advocating for those of others.

As an African-focused establishment, our five major objectives include:

  • Proffering workable solutions to Africa’s developmental problems and strategically executing them.
  • Organising trainings for sensitizing African youths within the ages of 14-25 on self-development awareness, leadership role, business management, health education (HIV/AIDS awareness), culture and modernization.
  • Connecting Africa by establishing and managing a bond between Africans and to promote good international relationships for a united Africa via a network system.
  • Organising and carrying out researches for the publication of a Journal of Development biennially; for the civic education of the African people.
  • Working in collaboration with other organisations and government institutions that mainly deals with community and national development within Africa.

YALF committedly works towards the collective development of the African people through the use of an indigenous network system, Infono. Infono is a South African based company, and it is used by YALF to create a First World order in Africa. We also work in collaboration with international organisations and government institutions that deal with development projects within Africa.
