Ghazaly: The network’s celebrations for Africa Day revive African solidarity.

Ghazaly: The world is in dire need of the concept of solidarity.

In the context of celebrating the anniversary of the launch of the African Union, known as Africa Day, the Global Solidarity Network has launched several initiatives, including the Nile Valley Peoples’ Solidarity Initiative, the AfroMedia Initiative for African Journalism and Media, and the Nasser Youth Movement.

These activities included several axes:

  1. The Nasser Youth Movement: Launched a series of articles published on the “Articles and Opinions” portal on the official website of the Nasser Youth Movement from May 15 to May 25 in preparation for Africa Day.

  2. The Nile Valley Peoples’ Solidarity Initiative:

Concluded with a workshop and celebration titled “Peaceful Coexistence and Combating Hate Speech” from May 23 to May 25, 2024, at the Sultan Qaytbay Complex in Historic Cairo. Over two days, it included workshops, handicrafts, a visual arts exhibition, and a concert at the Sultan Qaytbay Complex, involving about 150 young men and women, all under the slogan “Nile Valley Culture.”

  1. The AfroMedia Initiative for African Journalism and Media: Launched a training course named after the late broadcaster Hazem Abdel Wahab from May 26 to May 28, 2024, for African journalists and media professionals. The course concluded by honoring several prominent figures in African affairs, including researchers, journalists, and community leaders.

International activist Hassan Ghazaly, founder of the Global Solidarity Network, stated that the network was established over 13 years ago with a diverse set of programs, projects, community initiatives, and educational activities. These projects range from global and international to continental, regional, and local levels, aiming to empower youth, enhance their skills, build their capacities, and boost their participation in public life and decision-making processes.

Ghazaly emphasized that the Global Solidarity Network is committed to commemorating the launch of the Organization of African Unity through its projects and programs, each according to its specialization. Locally, the network, through the National Cadre Training School “Bozoor Project,” encouraged university students studying African languages to participate in articles and translations for Africa Day, which will be published on the Nasser Youth Movement’s official website. In this context, the school celebrated the training of 178 students studying Swahili at the Faculty of Al-Alsun, Ain Shams University, on the Cultural Day at the faculty. The university honored the Global Solidarity Network, especially the “Bozoor” project, for its efforts in training and building the capacities of Swahili language students.

Ghazaly further explained the role of the Global Solidarity Network in reviving the principles of African unity at the regional level through a series of events organized by the Nile Valley Peoples’ Solidarity Initiative in collaboration with the Mahrousa Foundation for Development and Participation. These events targeted Nile Valley residents living in Egypt.

In a related context, Ghazaly noted that as part of the Global Solidarity Network’s media role, the AfroMedia Initiative, one of the network’s projects, organized the late Hazem Abdel Wahab’s media training course for African journalists and media professionals over three days at the Journalists’ Syndicate in Cairo, under the auspices of the African Union. The course featured elite African journalists and broadcasters. It was led by a group of prominent journalism and media experts, including Dr. Ramadan Qarni, an expert in African affairs at the Egyptian State Information Service; Mr. Hisham Younis, deputy head of the Journalists’ Syndicate; journalist Mohamed Zidan, a member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists; journalist Osama El Deeb, a journalism trainer at the American University; journalist Iman El Waraky, founder of the Artificial Intelligence Revolution Initiative; journalist Ahmed Ashour, a digital media lecturer at Cairo University; and journalist Maha Salah El Din, head of the data validation department at Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper.

At the conclusion of Africa Day celebrations, Ghazaly stressed that the Global Solidarity Network was keen to honor those with diligent efforts and influential works in African affairs, recognizing their contributions of time, effort, intellectual, and societal productiveness to promote African culture and unity and encouraging them to continue their societal, academic, and developmental journey. Among the honorees was the late broadcaster Hazem Abdel Wahab, former general director of African-targeted radio stations, whose family received the award, as well as Dr. Mohamed Abdel Karim, journalist and African affairs researcher, journalist Saif El Borov for his journalistic role and support of the Sudanese community in Egypt, especially those displaced by war, journalist Randa Khaled, head of the African Affairs section at Al-Wafd newspaper for her journalistic awareness in African issues, trainer Tarek Tawer, director of Ganj Center, for his role in assisting Sudanese residents in Egypt and integrating them with their Egyptian brothers, and director Mahmoud Al-Adawi, who contributed to producing a series of artistic works in collaboration with Ganj Training Center, participating in 16 international festivals as a result of workshops with Egyptian and Sudanese children.
