Bringing DESPLAY Africa Training to Retirement

For 10 consecutive years, DESPLAY as a program through the unflinching support and funding from the best partner in the world (NED – USA), has been able to discover, train, and network young leaders from Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Cameroon, D.R Congo, and Liberia. Today, many of the people that undergone DESPLAY training academy are standing out in the society in various field especially in politics/governance, development work, media, among others. As delightful as the success stories of DESPLAY training reverberates in our heart, we are very deeply emotional in declaring to the world and NED in particular that the management of Youngstars Foundation has decided to retire DESPLAY training academy. Even though we understand that DESPLAY has metamorphosed into a lifestyle and a mental revolution of some sort for so many participants with many still hanging in the corner awaiting the next call for application, we believe we have done our bit and trust that over 500 direct trainees, as well as over 5000 indirect trainees of DESPLAY across the African Continent will take the baton of impacting many more young Africans on the principles of democracy, inclusive government, youth participation, youth aspiration and leadership among others.
