An Afrocentric Curriculum for Training The Next Generation of Pan-Africanists
This is a toolkit aimed at creating spaces for young Africans to unapologetically explore, define and claim their identity as Pan-Africanists.
We challenged our ideas of what it meant to be a young Pan-African and the role a toolkit could play on the continent. Discussions from the workshop we organized in Arusha in August 2018 informs the base of this toolkit.
In 2019, we tested the toolkit and piloted Afresist Youth Leadership Programme which trained 20 young Africans applying this toolkit and it has become more than a training course – it’s now a philosophy, a new model that is in harmony with the Africa we want. This toolkit itself is not aimed at coming up with definite answers, but rather deeper reflections around Pan-African leadership in everyday life through Afrocentric reflective participatory exercises and spaces. As Afresist, we believe social transformation starts with personal transformation – and for social change to be sustainable, the individual has to embody the values they want to see in society.
We thank our partners for the support, Afrika Youth Movement, Action Aid and Global Platforms.
