Re-election to Presidency of the United States of America
Dear Mr President
We, the Network of African Youths for Development (NAYD) (www.nayd.org), wish to congratulate you on your re-election to the position of President of the United States of America.
NAYD represents thousands of youths throughout forty-seven African countries and beyond engaged in sustainable development activities. We believe in youth ‘being the change’ and leading the way towards a truly sustainable future, and that holding each other’s hands is the way to achieve this.
We are grateful for the many exchange programs funded by the US Department of State to empower young people as key change agents. We look forward to continuous efforts that will be made on behalf of young people during your second term, expanding on what already has been accomplished.
While at Cairo University, you stated: “And I want to particularly say this to young people of every faith, in every country - you, more than anyone, have the ability to remake this world." The President’s Forum with Young African Leaders was a huge step in supporting your words, and we would be most grateful to reconvene the Young African Leaders as soon as possible during your second term to address progress made and to focus on the work ahead. This is particularly critical now that The World We Want 2015 (www.worldwewant2015.org) has launched and youth are organizing on a global scale means to enter into actions that will address “…for the first time in history … the resources to end poverty and grow our world sustainably.
It will take the work of all of us to make this happen and we must make our Governments listen and take action on the things that matter most to people everywhere!” Unfortunately lack of leadership at the Global level led to the failures of both the UN COP (Climate Change) and RIO+20 (Sustainable Development) talks. This is why we have decided to hold our own youth summit in 2013 on ‘Creating a Road Map for Sustainable Development in Africa’.
African Youth cannot wait any longer for the World’s indecision.
(On behalf of our team of Directors, Country and Summit Co-ordinators and members)
