Namibians invited to celebrate Africa Day
Namibians are invited to celebrate Africa Day at the Katutura Sports Youth Complex in Windhoek at 09:00, under the theme ‘Harnessing the demographic dividend through investments in youth’, on 25 May 2017.
On this day Africans celebrate their continental achievements for freedom and the values of unity that Africa upholds as a continent, while also paying homage to the founding fathers and mothers, heroes and heroins of the continent.
The Ministry of International Relations and Cooperations invited all Namibians to celebrate the progress made on the continent, and the commitment of the Namibian government to transform the potential of the country’s large youth population, and effectively invest in their health, education, empowerment and employment, through public action and private sector involvement.
“The youth is urged to be innovative towards poverty reduction and economic emancipation and that they are need more now than ever before. It is noted that young people in Africa are an enormous resource for the continent’s development therefore it is important to work in unison towards realizing the ‘Africa We Want’ as envisioned in Agenda 20163 and make it a shining, wealthy and progressive continent.”
“This day is to celebrate Africa’s cultural diversity and many strengths, in the spirit of “Harambee” and to rededicate ourselves towards a strong, united, peaceful, inclusive and prosperous Africa. Happy Africa Day” the ministry said.
