Our Vision and Mission

YADI’s Moto is "Moving forward. Making Africa Greater"

The mission of Young African Diaspora Initiative "YADI" is to facilitate the social, cultural and economic education of all the people of African descent (including African Americans) to inform them about their roots and their country of origin while engaging in constructive socio-cultural and socio-economic developments.

The vision is to solidly establish and to streamline the most efficient and effective peer-to-peer network amongst the US-African Diaspora, other African Diaspora around the world and the young African professionals/scholars living in Africa.
