Partners and Strategic Affiliations

AYT's Partnerships

East African Community Secretariat

As a result of AYT’s engagement within EAC on human rights and governance whilst promoting youth participation in regional law making, the EAC Secretariat signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with AYT which broadly defines the working relationship and modalities between the two institutions. In signing the MoU, the EAC secretariat recognizes the contribution AYT has made towards youth development at the regional level and commits to work with AYT in youth issues within the EAC. In light of this partnership, the EAC Secretariat in collaboration with the AYT jointly held the East Africa Youth Forum in October 2011 to review and obtain recommendations on the draft East Africa Youth Policy. The East Africa Youth Policy was passed and adopted in 2013. AYT continues to work with the EAC secretariat to enhance effective and meaningful participation of youth in the EAC Integration process.
