Objectives

  1. Bridge a network between all national & schools teams in Africa to coordinate annual board meetings and determine the host of the annual championship. There was an annual championship (ASDC) between 2006 and 2010 but has not been successfully hosted every since and we believe that this organisation can make it happen! (2017)
  2. Recognise and award the ones in Africa who have representing their nation as admirably ambassadors and who have achieved excellence in international competitions. The end goal to be able to award these students with partial scholarships for their college fees to assist them in fulfilling their dreams. (2017)
  3. Support new countries in forming national teams and promoting to debate to others to get them on board as well! As a continent of over 50 nations, it is unacceptable that less than 10 nations have ever participated in the WSDC. This is by far the lowest number of any continent in the world. We must also find ways to assist this new nations in obtaining funds and offer them advice through our own experiences. Our aim is to achieve 25 active national teams by 2020. (2017-2020)
  4. Host regional training conferences for debaters, coaches and adjudicators. (2019)
  5. Organise regional schools-only competitions which will lead up to a continental championship of the regional champions. (2020)
