Years of ineffective leadership, corruption, poor entrepreneurial spirit and lack of commitment to common good have led to underdevelopment and massive poverty in Africa. In order for Africa to make progress and ensure that its people can enjoy a better quality of life, the continent needs a new generation of leaders and workforce who can fast-track development and end poverty in Africa. With youth under the age of 25 comprising 60 percent of the population, much of the hope for Africa’s future lies in its young people. They are the agents of change and stakeholders in a better Africa

Launched in 2013, CSAAE is dedicated to harnessing the potential of young people and providing the kind of tools and trainings that endow them with the capacities, competencies and character necessary to sustain themselves, create opportunities that help others sustain themselves and embrace their roles as critical actors in building a better Africa. CSAAE is registered as a non-profit organization in Nigeria and a 501(c)(3) in the United States.

CSAAE has four programs which though distinct in their areas of focus, share the common goal of creating positive social, economic and political change one youth at a time.


A core part of our youth engagement is to challenge them to seek solutions to community problems. Currently, we are implementing 32 Community Development Projects (CDPs) across Nigeria.
