Project Update

AUNYD- (East) African UN Youth Delegates

As a follow up of the previous UN Youth delegate project in Sudan, this project aims at promoting UN Youth Delegates and UN fellows from Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda.

As the Youth from East African countries is still heavily underrepresented at the international stage, together with our partner organization in Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, we jointly designed a two-year project, funded by the German Foreign Ministry. 

The project aims to increase representation of the youth of East African countries at the UN supported by building a network of stable and capable UN Associations, which will organize UN Youth Delegate programs in the participating countries. 
The project capacitates East African youth and increases their visibility through workshops, skills trainings, and regional meetings fostering innovative learning concepts which lead up to the actual representation at the UN General Assembly on base of a joint vision for the East African region. 

Moreover, the project aims at fostering knowledge about the UN and its work in the participating countries among a broader youth audience.
