Nigerian Mission at WYA HQ
On 24 August 2006, the World Youth Alliance hosted a dinner for Minister Chijioke Wigwe and other
members of the Nigerian Mission – our partners during the recent reception for the Disabilities Convention.
WYA staff/interns and members of the Mission were able to share ideas regarding various issues facing the
youth in Africa, as well as our continuing work at the United Nations.
The World Youth Alliance is a global coalition of young people committed to promoting the dignity of the person and building solidarity among youth from developed and developing nations. We train young people to work at the regional and international levels to impact policy and culture. Through this lived experience of the dignity of the person young people are able to affirm life at all levels of society.
