Historical background on SOMAFCO Regional Youth Committee

The Regional Youth Committee came about as a result of discussions held during the ANC Youth Conference, which took place in 1982 in Mazimbu. The meeting was composed of working youth, students, the school commissar and the national commissar. It was decided that Regional Youth Committee be formed by two representatives from Morogoro, SOMAFCO, Dakawa and Dar-Es-Salaam, which in tum formed the Branches of the Regional Youth Committee. The aim was to consolidate and strengthen the youth section in all spheres, including political, educational, cultural activities, as well to forge links with their counterparts locally and internationally.
