Sectors

AU|  PADYA Sectors

PADYA is made up of eleven (11) sectors. Each strategically chosen to help us drive an aggressive agenda that is centered around economic development in Africa and the Diaspora. Join the PADYA family and chose a sector under which you think you can make the most impact. Sectors are led by a Chair and a  Co-Chair elected by the General Assembly and confirmed by the Board for a period of one (1) year renewable. PADYA's leadership is representative of the whole African Diaspora. We define being African just like Kwame Nkrumah did: “You are not African because you were born in Africa, you are African because Africa is born in you.” Come join our ranks and help us in building the #AfricaWeWant.
