Liberia to Host 2018 AYEE Summit

first_imgMr. Pewee delivers press statement at YOCEL’s office Monrovia After it was earlier announced that the 2018 edition of the annual Youth Education and Empowerment Summit (AYEE Summit) was scheduled in Kigali, Rwanda, the organizers of the summit have now changed the venue to Monrovia, Liberia.According to the Founder and Executive Director of Youth Coalition for Education (YOCEL) Beyan F. Pewee, the decision to move the international youth event back to Liberia is based on the overwhelming support from the Liberian government, especially from the ministries of Education and Youth and Sports, including partners.It may be recalled that after a successful launch of the summit in 2017 at the Farmington Hotel in Margibi County, near the Roberts International Airport (RIA), a special organizing committee unanimously agreed to host the event in Rwanda, to give other young people the opportunity to aspire to greatness by becoming agents of positive change.“We realized later that Liberia needs the AYEE Summit the most, because this will serve as a golden opportunity to promote and enhance youth-related issues in line with the government’s ‘pro-poor agenda’ by showcasing the country’s talents at regional and international forum,” Pewee said.The essence of the summit is to ensure that young Liberians are given the opportunities to network and become productive citizens for sustainable future.“We have added a new edition called the ‘Brain Date,’ to give participants the chance to network with stakeholders, partners, donors, and entrepreneurs, to attract support for their individual activities and also expand their scope of operations,” Mr. Pewee said.He added, “We will also have more participants and experts in this 2nd edition who will educate and motivate the young people to greatness.”This year’s event will commence from November 18–22, with hundreds of young Liberians expected to participate, including former heads of states and top business and civil society leaders.Meanwhile, after several requests made by local and international delegates, the organizers have reduced the registration fees for the summit, with local delegates paying US$75, instead of US$180 as previously announced, while international delegates are to pay US$150.Over 120 delegates from 22 countries in Africa, Europe, the Americas and the Middle East attended the summit last year in Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
