We will adhere and build upon the ideology and values of PFDJ, and we are determined to continue the legacy of the People’s Front that made Eritrea’s independence a reality. Guided by the National Charter we are working to ensure that we empower and mobilize Eritrean youth around the world. We will diligently work to transform and strengthen Eritrean communities, and we aspire to ensure that we, the youth, play our historic role to develop a viable and sustainable Eritrea.
