Kenya Model United Nations 23rd Annual Conference: A Platform for Youth Engagement

The Kenya Model United Nations 23rd Annual Conference concluded successfully, reaffirming its pivotal role as a platform for youth engagement and diplomatic discourse within East Africa. Organised by the Kenya Model United Nations Secretariat, the conference brought together passionate and motivated young leaders from diverse backgrounds to simulate the workings of the United Nations. Delegates engaged in tackling pressing global issues, diplomatic negotiations and formulating solutions to complex challenges facing the international community.

The conference served as a beacon for fostering leadership skills and global awareness among students, nurturing critical thinking, public speaking, and negotiation skills essential for future leadership roles. Additionally, it facilitated networking and collaboration among students, educators, and professionals, enriching the learning experience and fostering a sense of global citizenship among the youth of Kenya.

In her speech on SDG 4: Quality Education, Rachael reiterated Unicaf’s commitment to advancing sustainable development goals: “Education is the cornerstone of sustainable development, serving as a catalyst for economic growth, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability. We are committed to advancing SDG 4 through our scholarship programmes, online learning platform and partnerships with educational institutions across Africa and beyond. By leveraging technology and innovation, we strive to make quality education more accessible and affordable to individuals from diverse backgrounds, empowering them to realise their full potential and contribute to sustainable development.”
