ANEW invited to Coordinate and mobilize the Youth in Water in AfricaAt the Africa day during the Africa day during the World Water Forum, Marseille France, the participants recommended that AMCOW forms a task force to ensure that the youth are mobilized and actively engage in WASH issues more actively and deliberately. Following this recommendation, AMCOW put together a task force and Water Aid provided funding for an initial meeting in Nairobi. The meeting was to discuss and plan a way for ward for developing a youth and water strategy.
