Youth Empowerment:

We recognize the vital role that young people play in shaping the future of Africa.

Environmental Justice:

We believe that everyone has the right to a clean and healthy environment. We are committed to promoting environmental justice in Africa, and to ensuring that marginalized communities are not disproportionately affected by the negative impacts of chemicals and waste.
