What is the Nasser Youth Movement?

participants have benefited from the opportunity offered by this training.

Africa whose development is people driven, relying on the potential of African people, especially its women and youth, and caring for children”.
The Movement brings together young Africans to develop their capacities and achieve development in Africa in order for it to become a strong
international actor, in accordance with the objectives of sustainable development 2030.
