Last week in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the African Youth Decade Alliance celebrated African Youth Day by launching their ambitious "Five and Five Campaign." The campaign raises awareness and promotes action among youth for the Youth Decade Plan of Action. The African Youth Decade Alliance is a continental platform made up of youth networks from around the continent.
We'll be speaking this week with Freddy Lutonadio, Secretary of the African Youth Decade Alliance and Program Officer at African Monitor. He has nearly a decade of experience working on youth issues, including youth education and empowerment programs with Planned Parenthood of South Africa, the Sonke Gender Justice Network and Generation of Leaders Discovered. Originally from the Democratic of the Congo, Freddy currently lives in South Africa. He holds a first degree in social science from the University of Kinshasa and has studied at the postgraduate level at the University of Cape Town.
