Horn of Africa Youth Initiative (HAYI) is a global network with the objective to engage young people to participate in the promotion of a sustainable peace in the Horn of Africa.
HAYI's purpose is to provide a platform for the unification of the young, originating in the Horn of Africa to help solve our own problems through our own efforts and jointly bring the Horn of Africa into a brighter future in which we appreciate, respect and celebrate our diversity, history and civilization in the region.
"United We Stand, Divided We Fall"
Today, there are over 100 000 in Sweden that have their origin in the Horn of Africa. It is therefore natural to even here in Sweden draw attention to the root causes in terms of international law that are behind the problems that exist in the region and to develop an identity with the virtues of self-confidence and active participation in decision making processes related to the Horn of Africa.
HAYI will consequently by the late summer host a conference for that purpose and later on in autumn an outdoor event in conjunction with a seminar to raise public opinion regarding the substantive issues affecting the Horn of Africa.
