Vision and Mission
The vision of the Thabo Mbeki Foundation is to be a catalyst for the achievement of an African Renaissance by mobilizing Africa's progressive forces and creating a platform for dialogue to promote the birth of a continental social movement driven by a new cadre of leaders dedicated to Africa's political, social and economic development.
To be the catalyst for progressive change for the achievement of an African Renaissance.
The year 2013 marks 50 years since the formation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU).
The continental body was established on 25 May 1963 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. One of the main objectives of the OAU was to promote African unity, advance economic development and ensure the total liberation of countries that were still under colonial and white minority rule.
The OAU was formed with 33 members and South Africa was the last country to join the body after gaining its independence in 1994.
The OAU was succeeded by the African Union (AU) in 2002.
