Day of the African Child- Africa REACH, CARMMAPlus and African Union Commission Joint Message

Recently, Africa REACH Leadership Council member and Youth Envoy for the African Union Commission Chido Cleopatra Mpemba successfully presented and defended a request on behalf of young people across the continent. The Office of the Youth Envoy has been institutionalized by the African Union, an important achievement for the continent’s future generation considering that the United Nations declared that Africa has the youngest population in the world.

In partnership with the African Union Commission and AIDS Watch Africa, through the Campaign on Accelerated Reduction of Maternal Mortality in Africa (CARMMAPlus), Chido recorded a special message for the Day of the African Child.
