01Mission and vision

At Youth Peace Talks Initiative (YPTI), our mission is to promote peace, stability, and social development in Africa by empowering and engaging young people. We believe in the transformative power of youth to drive positive change and create a more peaceful and inclusive society.

Our vision is a peaceful and inclusive Africa, where the voices of young people are heard, respected, and valued. We envision a continent where youth are empowered to actively participate in decision-making processes, contribute to sustainable development, and promote social justice. By fostering a culture of peace, understanding, and collaboration, we aspire to build a future where African youth are at the forefront of positive change, creating a harmonious and prosperous society for all.

Through our programs, initiatives, and partnerships, we aim to provide opportunities for young people to develop leadership skills, promote dialogue, and address the root causes of conflicts in their communities. We believe that by investing in the potential of African youth and nurturing their talents, we can create a generation of peacebuilders who will shape the future of the continent.

With a commitment to inclusivity, diversity, and equality, YPTI works towards a united Africa, where peace and social development are cornerstones of progress. Together, we strive to build bridges, break down barriers, and foster a sense of belonging and solidarity among African youth.

02Our projects and initiatives

Our initiatives encompass a range of activities and programs aimed at fostering peace, empowering young individuals, and promoting dialogue. Let us introduce you to our key initiatives:

LE JOURNAL.AFRICA: As our flagship initiative, LE JOURNAL.AFRICA is a media platform dedicated to amplifying the voices of young Africans. We provide a space for diverse perspectives, impactful stories, and thought-provoking journalism. Through LE JOURNAL.AFRICA, we strive to inspire critical thinking, challenge stereotypes, and raise awareness about social issues affecting our continent.

Press Talent: Managed by LE JOURNAL.AFRICA, Press Talent is an annual competition designed to discover and nurture the journalistic talents of young individuals. It offers aspiring journalists a platform to showcase their skills and share their perspectives on important social issues. Through mentorship, workshops, and industry connections, we empower participants to become catalysts for change in the media industry.

PROPEACE: Our PROPEACE program focuses on empowering youth leaders for sustainable peace and democratic engagement. We equip young leaders with the necessary skills, knowledge, and tools to foster peace, resolve conflicts, and engage in democratic processes. By investing in the potential of young leaders, we aim to create a positive and lasting impact on communities affected by violence and unrest.

InfoxZero: Managed by LE JOURNAL.AFRICA, InfoxZero is an initiative aimed at combating misinformation and promoting media literacy. In a digital age where false information spreads rapidly, InfoxZero educates young people about the importance of critical thinking, fact-checking, and responsible consumption of media. By equipping youth with the skills to navigate the information landscape, we empower them to be discerning media consumers and active contributors to a more informed society.

These initiatives work hand in hand to inspire, educate, and empower young individuals to become agents of change. By promoting dialogue, fostering media literacy, and nurturing the talents of young journalists, we strive to create a more peaceful and inclusive world.
