Afar Youth Association was founded by 15 Afar Youth who are interested in the betterment of our community.
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.
