AFRICA10 IS THE LEADING PAN AFRICAN YOUTH ORGANIZATION FOR EXCELLENCE, INNOVATION AND LEADERSHIP. OUR GLOBAL MISSION: CREATE AN A10 GENERATION OF CHAMPIONS

Africa has long been resource-rich and outcome-poor. Gold, diamonds, oil, copper etc - all are abundant and yet these resources haven't been enough to lift the continent out of poverty. Perhaps because as African countries focused on natural resources, they overlooked the most important resource.

We believe that Africa’s most promising, productive and transformational natural resource is the continent’s youth. This is the new generation - restless, optimistic, irrepressible and creative. This is the generation that will define Africa’s promise and determine its future. A10 exists to help fuel this generation - to unlock the potential of Africa’s youth through sport and education.
