Greetings to all Africa Matters readers and supporters.
It's been one week since the opening of applications for the Ambassadors programme and the response has been incredible: we have received over 300 applications from African youth in Rwanda, Namibia, Kenya and Zimbabwe.
We wanted to give those awaiting responses an idea of when they can expect to hear from us.
5 March: Applications close. 16-18 March: All successful applicants will have heard back from AMI.
19-23 March: AMI will conduct digital interviews with applicants.
24-25 March: AMAP's selection process will be completed.
26 March: Ambassadors will be announced.
3 April: Online training sessions begin.
Please note: We are still looking for applicants! If you know anyone who might be interested in receiving leadership skills training, the support to enact their own social engagement projects or are dedicated to youth empowerment please encourage them to apply.
Our crowdfunding campaign is currently at 14% of it's goal. Help us make this it a success by spreading our crowdfunding campaign with anyone who may be able to assist us in reaching our goal.
We will continue to update you as the campaign moves forward. Until then, thank you to everyone who has expressed their support and applied to the program. We look forward to making this campaign a resounding success.
