Who or what is 1 Million Strong?
The 1 Million Strong initiative is essentially a collaborative platform build around one common cause – raising the next generation of leaders. Our collaborative partners are made up of numerous organisations, not just in Africa but in many parts of the world. The potential to reach millions of young people starts becoming a reality if we are able to empower these organisations to go forth and leverage the power of synergy. We are not that naïve to believe that we have all the answers; neither are we that naïve to believe that we can do it on our own. We require physical, mental and financial resources to fulfil our dream. We need organisations and people to partner with us. We need divine intervention. We need you.
We recognize the need to give our youth a voice, to address their concerns and to develop among them the next generation of leaders.Education is our weapon; schools and universities are our citadels.
Our partners combine a multiplicity of skills, professions, programmes and delivery mechanisms to reach as many young people as possible in as many countries as possible, regardless of creed, colour, culture, language or ethnicity.
