LIBERTY AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP CAMP 2011

Africa Youth Peace Call (AYPC) continues to spread liberty in Africa irrespective of the fact that we have limited resources at our disposal.

We cannot ditch this aim since Africa is desperately in need of economic growth and it cannot be achieved on a silver platter. My continent is caught in a barbed web of burdensome regulation, corrupt governments, weak institutions and insecure property rights.

Ensuring economic freedom for all is so much vital but alas that’s not the priority of our leaders. My team is therefore interested in reaching out to civil society especially young minds to ensure that they understand the wealth and poverty of nations. We are dedicated to the study and advancement of libertarianism in Africa through seminars, research and publications.

Many younger people here in Africa look up to the state to provide them jobs after graduation, however the irony here is that government is a bad manager of business and is therefore not capable of creating sustainable jobs.

It’s in view of this that AYPC introduced the annual Liberty & Entrepreneurship Camp in 2008. The camp seeks to broaden the knowledge of African students and anyone who care to discover new ideas on the freedom philosophies and equip them with business skills. Participants will explore classical liberal (Libertarianism) ideas and learn how to apply these principles to starting businesses and effecting meaningful political reform.

GOALS
• to promote classical liberal philosophy, economics, entrepreneurship in Africa
• to empower youth by giving tools for understanding and applying these ideas
• to produce some viable business plans for long-term mentoring and funding

This year the camp is coming on from 31 July – August 5. It’s a week long event and top class libertarians and agorist from Europe and the USA are billed to speak via video conference. They include George Donnelly, Rui Nobre Pinheiro, Jesse Thomas, Michael W. Dean, Dr. Ludwig van der Hauwe, Keith Hamburger, Yagub Rahimov, Noel Wulirider Neema Vedadi and a host lot of others.

We are having financial constraints and should be so glad if you could chip-in something small to make this year’s camp a shining success.

AYPC has enjoyed tremendous support from Mr. Michael W. Dean in recent times and we appreciate his kind support. In fact he’s responsible for the new face of our website, and has also donated and solicited for a whole lot of gadgets from friends and relatives. Kudos to you uncle Michael for your support to us in nurturing liberty here in Africa.

In liberty,

  1. “Many younger people here in Africa look up to the state to provide them jobs after graduation, however the irony here is that government is a bad manager of business and is therefore not capable of creating sustainable jobs.”

    Most young people in America have no idea that government is a bad manager of business, and have few or no skills to offer a good businessman. This is the tragedy of our government “education” system, and will drag us down for many long years even if we could somehow magically get rid of the bad government management.

    We must reach the youth, both with the knowledge of freedom and the skills to succeed in the free market. And by “we,” I mean people of good will all over the world. It is exciting to be involved in your efforts, and gives me hope for ours.

    God bless you richly.
