About Us

ABYA is a pan-African initiative created to promote literacy and adoption of blockchain, web3 and crypto in Africa through awareness, knowledge, skills and application among university students.

Africa’s financial growth has been impacted greatly by the creativity and ingenuity from unicorns like M-Pesa. Africa’s youth are alive to the opportunities that are inevitably becoming abundant in the blockchain, web3 and cryptocurrency space. By investing in Africa’s youth with future-proof skills, networking opportunities, and other programs, we are not only empowering individuals but also benefiting society as a whole. These young people have the potential to make a real difference in the world, and we are proud to be supporting them on their journey.

The Board of Directors

ABYA Board of Directors is made up of a group of individuals elected to represent the interests of the broader stakeholders – beneficiaries, employees, donors/funders, volunteers and partners.

Fully mandated with corporate governance, they define the rules, processes, and procedures designed to guide the way the organization make decisions and operate. In addition, ABYA Board has three levers through which it exerts its role as stakeholder fiduciaries, including: (1) the internal rules, processes, and policies it designates to guide secretariat’s behavior; (2) its choice of secretariat; and (3) the major resource allocation decisions it approves.
