“Youths are not just the future; they are the present. Given the opportunity, they have a pivotal role in global development and their communities. Their engagement is not just beneficial but essential. Countries are losing a crucial resource by not involving youth in all development processes. Their unique perspectives and experiences contribute significantly, making only development goals sustainable with their involvement.

Melvine Wajiri, Founder

PEP Africa wants to provide meaningful opportunities for young people to transition into adulthood. Since 2000, we have been at the forefront of disseminating crucial information, spearheading impactful campaigns, and organizing activities tailored to youth. Given the persistent demand for decent jobs, we focus on empowering young individuals through developing essential life skills and fostering their active engagement across various levels of society.

“We are the pencil that writes happiness, which connects the hearts and minds of young people and youths to be the change around the world. We also act as a good eraser that removes their sadness, inspires, and builds trust through social innovation that promotes partnership development effectiveness.”

PEP Africa understands the complex and multifaceted nature of youth challenges in Africa and has designed comprehensive strategies to address some of their root causes and improve the well-being of young people across the continent.

Our Mission

We empower youths with skills and provide them with the necessary tools to create positive change in communities by supporting youth-led/lead initiatives with a genuine interest in social transformation.

We will build this robust community with an army of executive volunteers who share a passion for youth development with us and our youth.  Through their engagement, our volunteers will move from knowing the joy of success to experiencing great significance in their lives.
