sou1Arriving in Khartoum this 05 November 2017, to participate in the 7th General Conference of the Sudanese Youth. The PYU President With the Secretary General Mr. Souleymane SIDIBE and the Deputy Secretary General Mr. ALI Mubarak, we were received in audience by the President of the Sudanese Republic His Excellency OMAR HASSAN EL BACHIR at the State house of Sudan.

With the objective to seek support for the Pan-African Youth Union, based in Khartoum, Sudan, and to present a project for the construction of the PYU headquarters.


With His Excellency President Omar El Bachir, We first thanked him for his support to the PYU Secretariat, for the creation of the Sudanese Youth Bank and for its youth integration policy in all decision making processes. Something that reflects his willingness to implement the 2017 AU theme focused on youth.

Taking the floor, considering that this year 2017 dedicated to African youth by his pairs, His Excellency President OMAR EL Bashir, congratulated us for the work done and for our dynamism in the search for the causes of the African youth.

Regarding the construction of the headquarters, another bet has been won, because the Sudanese Head of State has promised to build the headquarters of the African youth according to the model presented to him and whose financing cost is $ 14 million , by December 2017 in Khartoum.

Since the youth of the Continent has not had a permanent Headquarters since the existence of the PYU in 1962, the Organisation has even led to the creation of the African Unity organisation by our founding fathers such as Kwame Krumah, Sekou Touré and others. Something we promised to the African youth and obtained this November 8, 2017 from the Sudanese President His Excellency Omar El Bashir who announced the beginning of its construction in 1 month.

This 8-storey building will house an African Youth hotel with 300 rooms, the residences of secretariat members, several conference rooms, offices of regional and continental youth organisations, a sports circle. This will make Khartoum the capital of African Youth.

After the audience with His Excellency Omar EL BACHIR, we gave an interview to the Sudanese press.
