The AYEA project has over the years concentrated on promoting education and enhancing awareness amongst Africans in Germany. Motivating the youth to study or learn a vocational trade. The initiative goes further in encouraging African parents to support their children particularly at early stages of their schooling.  It has over the years succeeded in showcasing role models and connecting the youth to them. The AYEA event provides an outstanding platform for celebrating success, networking, socialization and integration.
