YPA has the objectives to promote education and community development for the poor and underprivileged in Africa as a whole. YPA also acts as a mediator between companies and students/young professionals from the YPA Alumni Network.
YPA’s main aim is to change the mindset of African Youth. We want to inspire people to become pro-active and take charge of their own lives. However, someone cannot concentrate and strive for this with an empty stomach, no shelter or house or poor medical conditions. That is why we have a two-folded strategy; we focus on changing the mindset but at the same time we ensure the necessary conditions to do this are met.
We are different from other non-profit organizations in the sense that we work with the grass root population to identify day-to-day problems, especially in rural and semi-urban areas.
