About Us

The African Youth Panel  is a platform of youth leaders from different African Countries and consists of members with diverse skills and backgrounds including academicians, Civil Society experts and politicians.

The AYP was initiated by the Danish NGO Forum to provide input to the Danish Africa Commission (DAC) on what youth can do in Africa’s development as well in what development partners should do to ensure that tangible results are achieved with their support.

The final DAC report recognised the importance of investing in young people for development in Africa. Consequently, the AYP received a grant from the Roskilde Festival Society to carry out its advocacy and capacity building work and to further strengthen its membership.
