The African Literary Club (ALIC), a Zongo youth empowerment non-governmental organisation, is participating in Global Peace Summit Turkey 2021, currently on-going in Istanbul, to promote global peace and love.

At least 150 young leaders around the world are deliberating on Global Peace and Future of Youth Development.

The three-day summit which begun yesterday, will offer a plethora of sessions ranging from the main stage, presentation sessions, diplomatic and policy makers panel talks and social innovation accelerator challenge.

The vast array of sessions allows participants to broaden their horizon and to showcase their talent and discussplans, and offer inventive answers to the problems that are to be addressed in the world to achieve United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

It is being organised by the Global Peace Chain with the objective of promoting the message of love and peace, believing that young people, as agents of change, are critical actors in conflict prevention, sustaining peace and development of societies.

GPC envisions to build resilience, cultivate the culture of tolerance, inclusivity, interfaith harmony, co-existence, love and social peacebuilding across the borders.

The Executive Director and Co-Founder of African Literary Club (ALIC), Alhaji Khuzaima Osman, told the Ghanaian Times that he was privileged to be selected across the globe from among over 3,000 applicants and “only about 150 of us representing the Global Youth for Peace and Development campaigners around the world meeting in Istanbul, Turkey.”

He expressed the optimism that the summit would open up the club to new innovations to nurture the capabilities and talents of interested youth to promote peace, tolerance, interfaith, love, harmony, and development in Ghana and on the African continent.

The Global Peace Summit will also highlight cross cultural exchange, global friendship, self-exploration, leadership development and youth empowerment.

The ALIC founded at Fadama, a suburb of Accra, engages the services of  trainers, academicians, traditional authorities, religious leaders, interfaith advocates, and entertainment experts to instil in the trainees, the spirit of peace building, national development, and global stability.

Among the current trainees are young Ghanaian SHS graduates, undergraduates, and post graduate students, who understand the power of liberal arts and literary activism as a value addition to their intellectual growth and national service.
