NUEYS’ (the National Union of Eritrean Youth & Students) mission is to cultivate and produce capable youth by promoting and strengthening Eritrean youth in all aspects of national, regional, and international development processes.
NUEYS is the outcome of the historic resistance of Eritrean students against colonialism. The Eritrean students’ association was officially established at its first congress in 1978 in the city of Keren. In 2010 NUEYS works to assure the comprehensive development of the youth, and to encourage their participation and contribution to Eritrea and the global youth movement. NUEYS Central Office is located in Asmara, Eritrea. NUEYS now has 7 regional branches and over 50 subbranches in Eritrea. NUEYS also extends to Eritreans in the Diaspora with over 20 international chapters, in over 15 countries around the world.
