Who We Are
We are a network of young Afar leaders who share a common vision: transforming our community in the Afar Triangle and across the diaspora by developing and connecting a new generation of young leaders. We strive to be a platform run by and for Afar youth who want to shape their own future. We acknowledge the tremendous challenges and uncertainties that young people are facing in the Afar Triangle and throughout the diaspora. It is our mission to bring together like minded youth together to create a strong youth-lead community. A community of young people that are committed to the social, economic, and political betterment of our people.
We aim to identify, develop and connect the next generation of young Afar leaders
Afar Youth Association (AYA) seeks to transform the Afar community by developing a powerful network of young leaders across the diaspora and within the Afar territories who will work together to address our people’s greatest challenges, achieve social impact, and accelerate the transformation of our community and territories.
