The Royal African Foundation is a non governmental organization whose goal is to promote Africa in business, politics, culture and academia.
In a bid to salvage the plights of young people in Africa, the Royal African Foundation in partnership with the Bridge Leadership Foundation, Uwanse Orphanage, Girls Power Initiative and Offiong Ikpeme Foundation brought the Royal African Volunteering week mission.
The mission is to inspire all citizens of Nigeria, reputable organisations and their government. This is aimed at meeting cognitive criteria such as promoting, sharing, investing and contributing of one’s acquisitions, time and resources which is of immense importance as it will aid in the smooth running of the organisation.
The Royal African Foundation is set to strengthen individuals and also provide institutional capacities for the purpose of gaining social, cultural, political and economic inclusion and participation.
Following the Foundation’s target, the Royal African Foundation in their utmost capacity initiated a Royal African Volunteering Week which is a period to rekindle the spirit and power of volunteerism across the African globe in every facet of life.
 The Royal African Foundation stated “We believe volunteering is no respecter of age, geographic location, gender, educational background or financial status.
Volunteerism is a unifying force that unites  people together. It fosters a friendly atmosphere and grant you the opportunity to meet people. It also helps to break both local and international barriers as well as establish trust, and acquaintanceship. It also help to open endless doors of opportunities to people.
This however creates tremendous opportunities for people to do volunteering activities both offline (face-to-face) or online as long as it impacts any African community”.
In an interview with CrossRiverWatch, the Coordinator for Cross River State of Royal African Foundation disclosed that “The seven days Social Media Campaign starts today and the physical campaign starts tomorrow where we will have one at Ekpo Abasi roundabout on drugs, ‘Youths Against Drug Abuse”.
She added “On Wednesday we are going to have “Youths Against Domestic Violence Campaign.” In our project we have different groups; we have the environmental group, sanitation group, advocacy group and the mentorship group. The mentorship group are the ones here who will be at the bridge leadership foundation Unwanse Orphanage were they are going to mentor clean and health to other young people. When it comes to the advocacy group, the advocate group are going to be talking about Youths Against Drug Abuse as well as Youths Against Domestic Violence  which is Tuesday and Wednesday. The Environmental sanitation is taking place at Ekpo Abasi today by 7:00am and then tomorrow at Mayne Avenue and Wednesday, on Marian.”
