On the 23rd April, Commonwealth Youth Council (CYC) interviewed Yentyl Williams, Founder and President of ACP YPN on her experience of founding the international youth organisation.
CYC were particularly keen to know: 1. Why did you decide to start ACP YPN? 2. What are the main objectives? 3. Any successes so far? 4. What are your future plans? 5. Any challenges? 6. Any messages to youth of the Commonwealth?
Yentyl explained the importance of establishing ACP YPN – to advocate that the EU and ACP countries utilise Article 26 of the legally bingind Cotonou Partnership Agreement on ‘youth issues’ – for which she was awarded Commonwealth Champion.
