Declaration

“We, the Youth at the 1st African Youth Forum which took place on Robben Island from 15-19 September 2018, from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Mauritius, Malawi and Namibia, as a united voice, have noticed social problems and economic difficulties in our communities of substance abuse, gangsterism, teenage pregnancy, mortality, social inequalities, and violence.

In the spirit of the Olympic Values of Respect, Friendship, Excellence, Balance of Body, Will and Mind and Fair Play – we declare to create a platform that uplifts youth, and that carries the voice of the youth in Africa for Sport, Development and Peace so that we have a space to be heard, a space to share opportunities, and a space to mentor each other for a brighter future, for all.”
