Young People Today. TIME TO ACT NOW.

The ESA Commitment Marked a New Era for the Region

On 7 December 2013, in Cape Town, South Africa, Ministers of Education and Health from 20 countries in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) agreed to work collaboratively towards a vision of young Africans who are global citizens of the future.

They affirmed a commitment to the right to the highest possible level of health, education, non-discrimination, and well-being of current and future generations. The Commitment had two sets of targets to be achieved in 2015 and 2020 respectively.

Our Vision

A young African, a global citizen who is empowered, educated, healthy, resilient and socially responsible – an autonomous decision-maker and has the capacity to reach their full potential and contribute to the development of their community, country, and the region.
