The Vision of AI is to contribute positively through research, trainings and direct interventions in creating a society devoid of War,Hunger and strives, where every African regardless of race, tribe and religion will enjoy human security with complete sense of belonging, living together in peace and harmony. Our Guiding principles are: Human dignity assurance ensure human security embrace gender equality encourage youth empowerment build social transformation foundations for reconciliation independent research and opinion on Human Security challenges local use of experts for development
Three major areas of research and intervention for this Initiative are Youth roles in eradicating ; Policy Defects, Hunger and Wars in African Society. AI programmes are designed to reflect the overall need for an "African solution" to the problems of Hunger, Insurgencies caused predominantly by lack of proper leadership skills of policy makers. With a growing population and over 45% average Youth population, there is a need for a proper attention at youth development to stymie current unrests in the region within this generation.
