Africa Youth Heritage Program-AYEHP #MyAfricanHeritage
Through our wide network of young changemakers in the region, the Africa Youth Heritage Program has made it possible to create avenues for young people in the African region to interact with themselves, nature, culture and the rich African heritage on top of networking and establishing international friendship and understanding. Through AYHP we create join action plan for various heritage both regional and national building endeavours avenues through which young people can appreciate their African heritage and train them on how best they can use their heritage sites and materials as a source of income sustainably without exhausting them.
The most famous project under this program has been the International Heritage Youth Camps and the world heritage volunteer camps and initiatives that have not only equipped young people with skills in our focus scope areas but also helped youth to foster collective efforts for preserving, protecting and promoting our culture hence building the unity in diversity, identity, friendships and understanding. Promoting the spirit of globalisation for collective impact. Under this project, young people are exposed to influencers or heritage sites, cultures and ways of life shared from all over the African region. Through this program young people have also learned how to protect and preserve these heritage sites for example by planting trees in some of these national parks, creating paths for these wild animals and tourists in order for the not endanger the already existing ground vegetation. The project currently has been operating in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa but involved participants from all-over the Anglophone African region (26 countries and 45 youth volunteers/leaders). Our actions or discussions and problem solving differs year to year and is focused on issues that matter to you for example wealth creation and meaningful participation in decision making at national and regional level.
