Message from the Executive Director – February 2018

Lawalley Cole, Executive Director

Dear colleagues and partners,

The Coalition on Media and Education for Development Africa Forum (CAFOR) is steadily consolidating partnerships with several affiliated organizations and experts around the continent. We encourage more organizations, institutions, experts and individuals committed to ensuring that education systems in Africa are relevant to young Africans with newly acquired skills that correspond with the labour market within Africa to join this coalition.

I am delighted to note that many African countries are committed to meeting Sustainable Development Goal Nos. 4 and 8 of the 2030 Global Agenda which deals with quality education and decent work and economic growth. Our youth need to receive training that is relevant and directed towards developing the required skills needed to be productive adults to tap their full potential. At CAFOR, we are asking for a review and adaptation of national curricula to meet the needs of current global situations.

The Board and management of CAFOR call upon all well-meaning individuals, organizations and other stakeholders to come forward with idea and material,  technical and financial support that will assist in the achievements of the Coalition’s vision and mission.


Long live the Coalition!
