In achieving its mission, EAA believes young people are not only the beneficiaries of its work, but also the key agents in finding solutions and bringing positive change to the world. The key themes of youth development and empowerment are at the forefront of all of our projects.
EAA seeks to strengthen youth advocacy for peace and adherence to international humanitarian norms. Education is the driver of human development, and it is through sharing knowledge that we can overcome obstacles to a better future. The aim is not simply to offer an education to more children, but to promote civic leadership, the rule of law and the right to education as three key drivers that will enable a more peaceful and just society as well as advance economic empowerment.
By disseminating the message that education is a gateway to peace and should always be a priority in peacebuilding, young people become a force for peace not only in their communities, but their countries as well.
