The Goals of the future WEF’s Agency in Nairobi, Kenya:

  • Promote ideas of development and education for the Continent of Africa beyond national borders, and systematically study the prerequisites and preconditions for meaningful agendas on development education that are readily available for implementation.
  • Campaign against illiteracy and backwardness, both in the cultural milieu and economic realm, so as to accelerate the development march of African countries in the 21st century.
  • Encourage African nations to prioritize educational development in an effort to enhance Human Development Index (HDI).
  • Encourage African nations to facilitate good governance and the culture of democracy, and inevitably permit the social and economic development.
  • Appeal to the rich nations or potential donors to accelerate their investment in Africa in an effort to promote genuine economic development; to incorporate in their economic policies the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Africa.
  • Diagnose the real problems encountered by African countries in their inability to realize a development and education agenda that can overhaul their respective national economies.
  • Formulate development and educational policies and strategies [including designing curriculum for schools and higher institutions of learning as well as political economy analysis on the state of development for Africa in general and specific countries in particular.
  • Solicit funds and services from foundations, organizations, governments, and philanthropists for fulfilling the goals of WEF Africa.
