The theme of International Youth Day 2020, “Youth Engagement for Global Action” seeks to highlight the ways in which the engagement of young people at the local, national and global levels is enriching national and multilateral institutions and processes, as well as draw lessons on how their representation and engagement in formal institutional politics can be significantly enhanced.
This year’s IYD seeks to put the spotlight on youth engagement through the following three interconnected streams:-
Young people have a zeal for technology and innovation that is driving global economies and they represent a formidable workforce due to their energetic abilities.
This is an assemblage of youths making their marks in their various fields of technology and innovation with the youths being the drivers of entrepreneurial growth in the 21st century. This cross-continental tech and innovation meet is organized by the AAYFO center for learning, social enterprise and innovation and its intended to establish a platform to inspire, discover and empower the next generation of innovators from across Africa and Asia in realizing their full potentials.
The world needs sustainable development. This can only be possible when the determined youths from across the globe collaborate to make it happen. Only the collective shoulders of the youths can withstand the responsibility of developing the world sustainably.
AAYFO is a unique amalgamation of progressive thinking Asian and African youths collaborating to forge a common goal in stimulating youth cooperation. Its a great platform for youths across Africa and Asia to interact with like minded youths enthusiastic to drive meaningful change.
Being a part of AAYFO has given me and every other youth the opportunity to harness value-driven innovative solutions and sustainability through embrace of the 17 SDGs, thus resulting in local and global impact through championing of transformation in Africa, Asia and beyond.

AAYFO has given opportunity to youths from across the two continents to innovatively and creatively
unleash their potential.
Through AAYFO, I believe the youths can be empowered with skills that will enable them to
become more independent, as such; this will lead to sustainable development.
Through AAYFO Indonesia, I realize that youth have big roles to realize sustainable development, to carry out a mission of peace by upholding the values of equality, as well as to strengthen the cooperative relationships of youth between nations.

Diversity is said to be one of the leading causes of human conflict but AAYFO has shown me that only when diversity is respected and embraced, we can reach the desire unity which generates the very power driving this youth community forward. I believe to make sustainable development within human’s reach, it requires us to foster youth empowerment and give them the chance to show the world how their inclusive power works to help us achieve sustainability. Therefore, the role of youth organization like AAYFO has become even more significant than ever before.
Founded in 2018 by a consensus of youth leaders from Nepal, Uganda, Vietnam, Nigeria, India, Zimbabwe, China, Ghana, Afghanistan, and The Gambia.
