SUBJECT: CLARIFICATION ON LEADERSHIP OF AYC SENEGAL NATIONAL CONSORTIUM
The AYC Secretariat would like to inform the general public that, the pioneer member organisation of AYC Senegal National Consortium is ‘’Junior Chamber International (JCI) Dakar’’ with Mr. Moussa Fara DIOP as legal representative/focal point of the Consortium.
JCI Dakar is part of JCI global movement that challenges the status quo by inspiring young people to recognize their responsibility to create a better world and empower them to drive change. This youth-led entity joined the larger AYC family during the 3rd Annual General Assembly Meeting held in Banjul, The Gambia on March 26th, 2019.
Launched on the 27th of July, 2019, the AYC Senegal Consortium becomes the fourth in Africa officially mandated to implement activities at national level in alignment with AYC Strategic Plan 2018-2020, which outlines practical steps to create decent job and entrepreneurship opportunities for young people, improve health services including comprehensive sexuality education in formal and non-formal education, promote human rights and deliver good governance, accountability and social cohesion at all levels as well as encourage inclusion and active participation of youth in the maintenance of peace and security in the country, at regional and continental levels.
The AYC National Consortiums are not an organisation or a replica of the AYC structure at national level but rather a platform composed of different youth-led and youth-serving organisations to provide youth friendly space and amplify youth voices in current policy and decision making processes. The works of the national consortiums are coordinated and supported by the AYC Secretariat through its Coordinator of National/Regional Consortiums.
We therefore would like to encourage all our partners to work with or channel their supports through the recognised member entity (s) of national consortium for proper management and accountability of resources allocated. In the same vein, as the AYC work through its member entities at national levels, we urge our partners to follow the internal processes and procedures of the AYC and stop engaging any self-proclaimed individual or self-appointed coordinator (s) who are not part of the legitimate structures within the AYC network.
In line with our core values of Pan-Africanism and Inclusiveness, the AYC Secretariat and member organisations of AYC national consortiums will continue to mobilise young people from all walks of life, promote their inclusion, participation and engagement in all projects and initiatives of the AYC at all levels to collectively achieve the Africa we want.
