Rather than standing or speaking for African children, we need to stand with African children speaking for themselves.

My Afrika My Voice is a community based youth activism project that works in resource deficient communities targeting school-aged children between the ages of 12 - 17 years. Our mission is to develop the next generation of leaders and thinkers through creative problem solving and capacity building. The initiative is designed to improve efficacy in youth by coupling the educational approach to social studies with community engagement. Our goal is to create a culture of youth self-determination by encouraging youth-initiated leadership projects that strengthen the community. The youth are central to the initiative’s mission serving as the targets of change and the primary agents of change.
