Registration for participation in the African Youth Education Awards (AYEA) 2022 has been flagged off by its organisers.
Every year, young people who have excelled in their educational and training careers are honoured with AYEA at a colourful ceremony in Hamburg.
AYEA, an initiative to promote higher educational achievements among youth in African-origin communities in Germany, started in 2010.
The scheme acts against the observed low educational attainment levels of African-origin youth, which has been partly blamed on lack of motivation, at that time.
In addition to the awards issued out to the winners, the scheme also encourages successful African professionals, including lawyers, doctors, teachers and technicians, to mentor youths.
It’s believed that positive role models from within their own communities will inculcate a higher sense of self-efficacy in the youths and push them to achieve their potential.
