Dear all,

UPDATE 1;  THE AFRICAN YOUTH FORUM-UGANDA

17TH – 19TH JULY 2010

It was nice meeting you at Victoria Falls and I hope you are doing fine.

I write to confirm that the Government of the Republic of Uganda will host an African Youth Forum alongside the 15th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union in July 2010.

The Forum will be held under the theme “Maternal, Infant and Child Health: African Youth Call for Action”; and will take place from 17th – 19th July 2010 at Botanical Beach Hotel-Entebbe, on the Shores of the Mighty Lake Victoria.

This unique Forum, the first of its kind on the African Continent, will aim to;

v  Position African Youth as critical players in the continent’s development and to influence the highest level of decision-making in Africa.

v  Understand the most effective ways of transmitting their thinking to leaders whose decisions strongly affect them.

v  Explore and work towards establishing a mechanism for African Youth to effectively communicate with the continental leadership and ensure that the Forum becomes an integral and regular component of future Africa union heads of state and government summits.

The purpose of this email is to kindly request your office to forward the names of the two nominated young people (one male and one female) between the ages of 16 and 29 to attend this unique forum.

For some of you who have already forwarded the names, I do say thank you. But kindly have the nominees fill the attached form.

UNICEF in collaboration with its development partners through UNICEF’s Country Offices will support the participation of the two young people by providing return air tickets. Accommodation, feeding and transport inland; will be provided by UNICEF-Uganda Office. Nomination of the two young people should reach the address below before 3rd July, 2010 to facilitate smooth preparations.
