What is Africa Day ?
Africa Day is celebrated with a core goal to promote the spirit of Pan-Africanism, the belief, conviction and dream that Africa is one.
Africa Day is held every year on May 25th to commemorate the founding of the African Union, formerly known as the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), on May 25, 1963.
On July 9, 2002, the African Union (AU) was restructured with a charter to defend Africa’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence, as well as to eradicate all forms of colonialism and promote international cooperation.
The theme for Africa Day 2022 is “Nutrition,” which emphasizes the importance of combating malnutrition and food insecurity.
With over 100 million Africans suffering from food insecurity, poverty, and malnutrition, it is critical that this issue be addressed.
The African Union’s 20th anniversary is being commemorated at this year’s summit, which will be held in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, from Wednesday, May 25 to Saturday, May 28, 2022.
Macky Sall, the current chairman of the AU, will chair the event. The summit’s main topics of discussion will be health, climate, food, and security crises.

It is hoped that the summit and discussions will bring the African food crisis to light and provide long-term solutions.
