About the Voice Africa's Future
Voice Africa's Future (VAF) aims to use mobile technology to solicit the perspectives and aspirations of youth in ten African countries about the future they want to see. The campaign began from the premise that it was important to create platforms for ordinary citizens to influence and shape the Post 2015 agenda. The VAF initiative has been running in 6 six countries on a mobile platform, and in 4 countries on an off-line platform. It has so far mobilised participation of more than 77 000 youth participants across the ten countries; thus generating significant and critical data about the experiences of Africa's youth, their key concerns, and their aspirations for the future. In 2014 and 2015, the Voice Africa's Future campaign will focus on ensuring that the perspectives and aspirations of youth in Africa are adopted by the United Nations as part of the post 2015 development agenda.
The Voice Africa's Future campaign is an initiative of African Monitor. It has been made possible with funding support from DFID. To learn more about Voice Africa's Future, please visit: www.africayouth2015.org and www.africanmonitor.org
