Development Generation Africa International

Africa is a continent of the young, with more than 60% of the total population below the age of 30. Any serious policy for social, political and economic development in Africa must recognize the very importance of young people, especially in promoting social progress, reducing political tension and maximizing economic performance.

Development Generation Africa International is a registered non-governmental organization with focus on children, youth, women and community development and engagement; through skill-based training, capacity building and education; geared towards the achievement of sustainable development.


A member of the Partnership to Cut Hunger and Poverty in Africa (PCHPA) and Global Youth Action Network (GYAN), Development Generation Africa International connects children, women and youth together with stakeholders to discuss issues and take action on their issues.

At the DGAi, we believe that the depth, pace and scope of any development in Africa,  particularly Nigeria depends on how well its youth resources are nurtured, deployed and harnessed. Our focus for 2015-2020 are in the areas of raising awareness and building strategic partnerships with relevant stakeholders for poverty eradication, addressing inequalities and in the fight against climate change!

Development Generation Africa International is providing the mechanism for articulating emerging concerns of children, and youth in Africa and with them, we continue to develop consensus regarding solutions. Our main objective is to develop concrete strategies for maximizing the contributions of children and youth to national, regional and international development agenda with focus on three primary pillars:

  1. Children, women and youth in economic development
  2. Children and youth in social transformation
  3. Children and youth in governance and political development.

DGAi was founded to be a veritable children and youth platform for debating, discussing and initiating concrete strategies for Africa’s development and engagement.

Development Generation Africa International (DGAi) is in Special Consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) since 2015.

…fueling the future we want!
