Africa Day is celebrated on May 25th every year around our continent to commemorate the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (African Union) in 1963. The African Union’s Agenda 2063 is to build “an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the international arena.”

The Africa Day celebration is also a platform for the continent to engage and build stronger networks and partnerships at various levels across national and international boundaries by highlighting African solidarity, unity in diversity, creativity, challenges and successes, and the cultural and economic potential of our continent.
