Youth

Unite the youths of the community all over Africa under one banner for the realization of greater and effective participation and involvement in all spheres of religious, communal and secular life.

 The primary mission of the Africa Youth Network - the youth board of Africa Federation - is "Cultivating and strengthening youth networks to develop the youth for tomorrow: educated, socially aware and vibrant followers of the Ahlul Bayt (AS)".

To this effect, I am proud to introduce our core team. The team members have displayed a versatile and talented skill-set, diverse experience in working in youth affairs and development work and great dedication. In addition to this core team, youth representatives from each jamaat will provide their input, support and unique perspective to ensure the development needs of the youth are addressed at a holistic level. Please find below brief profiles for each of our core team.
