To begin this year’s African Diaspora Awards celebration, we are hosting our first annual ADA United Nations Ambassadorial Tour in partnership with the United Nations Association SNY for Young Professionals. The tour will be held on Thursday, November 7, 2013 and consists of taking a group of young African professionals to visit three African based Permanent Missions here in New York City.
The goal of the ADA Ambassadorial Tour will be complimentary of Applause Africa and UNA-SNY Young Professionals efforts to inspire young African professionals in the Diaspora to achieve their highest potential by creating a pathway for them to become involved with the Missions objectives in the UN. We also believe that the tour will assist the Permanent Mission to actively engage with the African Youth in Diaspora about programs and policies of their organization.
The African Union states “ The African Diaspora are peoples of African descent and heritage living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship and who remain committed to contribute to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union”. This tour serves as our way of connecting the civil society of the African Diaspora to the people in authority.
Applause Africa and UNA-SNY Young Professionals strongly believes that it is important to connect the young Africa leaders of today in order to inspire leaders of tomorrow.
