The Youth and Children’s Advocacy Panel (YACAP) is an organization registered in Sierra Leone, Cyprus and different countries across Africa. Over the years, YACAP has been positively impacting the lives of young people in Sierra Leone and Africa through their workshops, summits, conferences, campaigns and skill trainings. To celebrate International Youth Day on the 12th of August 2021, YACAP held a remarkable summit: The National Youth Leadership Summit, which has been happening since Its inception in 2018 and has now been recognised as the biggest youth summit in Sierra Leone. The summit hosted more than 500 youth leaders from various districts in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana and Nigeria in the House of Parliament Sierra Leone and on Zoom. The theme for this year’s summit was ‘Maximizing the Potential of Young People in Africa. The time for young people to take up leadership is now. Several speakers deliberated on the importance of the youths, and also how they should utilise their abilities and capabilities to build a brighter and better future for themselves and their nations.
At the peak of the event, the Executive Director of YACAP addressed the audience centring his presentation on recognizing key organizations and institutions, who have been doing an incredibly amazing job to improve the livelihoods of the youths in Sierra Leone.FONATI FOOTBALL ACADEMY was among the organizations that received an award in recognition of our relentless and outstanding efforts in building the capacity of young people in Sierra Leone and Liberia through football, community outreach and vocational skills training.
The mission and vision of Fonati Football Academy align with the mandate of YACAP and more especially the Theme for this year’s summit, ‘Maximizing the Potential of Young People in Africa. More so, both organisations intend to empower youths for individual and national development. This award indicates that indeed Fonati Football Academy has and is still contributing to youth empowerment in Sierra Leone.
We want to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to YACAP, for recognising the effort and support we are investing in the lives of Young People. The Academy look forward to receiving more awards, in honour of our desire to help youths unravel their full potentials.
Kindest Regards,
Andrew Chokpeleh.
