OUR HISTORY

During a youth conference in Kimberely in 1993, young people present reflected on the role that youth must play in developing their nations and it was agreed by consensus that the role was diminished. It was noted that there was a need for a regional coordinating structure for the youth by the youth and that is how Southern Africa Youth Movement was born.

The organization was registered as an NPO in South Africa in 2002 and country chapters and networks were established which culminated in a founding conference in 2004. Partnerships were established in Malawi, Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mauritius, Angola, Namibia, and Zambia.

SAYM continues to grow from lobbying & advocacy for youth-centered policies phase to implementation of some of the policies advocated for with programs that can be replicated in other countries.
