It was a pleasure for our Executive Director, Dr. Lawalley Cole, to once again receive Mr. Kemal Abdela and his team members Mr. Sharou Markos and Mr. Samson Haileyesus from the O-Yes Global Foundation in his office at the African Union Commission Headquarters on Thursday 23 June 2022. The trio briefed him on their organization’s preparations for the forthcoming Africa-Asia Youth Summit that will be held in Addis Ababa from 28 – 30 July 2022. The O-Yes Global Foundation is a youth-led non-profit NGO that has a base in Ethiopia and in Thailand. This NGO is supporting and empowering youths in both Africa and Asia through designing and implementing youth-focused initiatives and development programs in partnership with local communities, governments, international organizations, and other stakeholders working on youth development in the two continents. CAFOR will enter into a new Memorandum of Understanding with the O-YES Global Foundation, and will always partner with youth-led organizations that work within the African continent to promote the education and training of young people as well as promote employment for young people within the continent.
