AIESEC is a non-governmental organization run by youths that dictates its resources into fostering leadership qualities by sending participants on cross-cultural exchange to countries of their own choice.
History of AIESEC
The organization has been in existence since the Second World War courtesy of a group of young people who were determined to bring cross-cultural understanding in order to prevent similar conflicts in the future.
AIESEC strikes to achieve peace and fulfilment of humankind’s potential by placing confidence in the youth as the Key to unlock a better future.
The organization which was started in Europe has now grown to be an International organization present in over 129 countries and over 6000 members as of now.
