YILAA approaches the activity of each young person as if it were our own. We believe that YILAA should be more than just a unifying youth organization. We put ourselves in the place of young people, align our incentives with their objectives and collaborate to unleash the full potential of their agricultural project by controlling land and encouraging states to give pride of place to young people’s access to rural land. This creates deep and pleasant relationships for the development of African states.
The right approach is necessary for the right result. The activities of YILAA approaches work by applying its external knowledge to the internal way of making African States. We know that to maximize the potential for success, we need to shape our advice from experts and researchers in a way that applies to how we do partner structures and countries. This allows us to create rich relationships with all the African youth.
