The BA launched the African League of Young Masters (ALYM) in July 2011 as part of the Youth and Environment Programs. This program mainly targets African students studying at Alexandrina University. It aims to open channels of communication between African students and their Egyptians peers through weekly meetings and other activities during which the two parties share and exchange knowledge and experience. It also has long-term plans for strengthening Egyptian-African relations through producing future ambassadors for Egypt in different African countries.
