African Union Logo Design Competition 2019: Call for Entries Logo Design for Innovating Education in Africa Expo

Education and training remain among the bedrock of tools for human empowerment inclusive prosperity and progressive development. However, this powerful agency of education does not happen by chance. It has to be planned and strategized through adoption of innovative practices in education.

to nurture African core values and promote sustainable development at the national, subregional and continental levels.
