WELCOME TO TAFMUN
The African FutureTrust Model United Nations (TAFMUN) conference is the flagship project of FutureTrust Initiative for Capacity Building (FTI); an NGO registered with the Federal Government of Nigeria. FTI’s Vision is to be a leading organization that would provide life changing learning experiences and opportunities for young people; the future of every nation.The August 2015 conference was its maiden edition.
TAFMUN is a 4-day United Nations (UN) simulation conference that will provide senior high school and A’ Level students with the opportunity to discuss topics of international concern through constructive debate with their peers.
The objective is to seek, through discussion, negotiation and constructive debate, solutions to the various problems of the world. With its problem-solving approach, the students are truly placed in the shoes of diplomats – a uniquely powerful way to educate young people about global issues. The young delegates, in seeking solutions to global problems learn to break away from narrow self-interests and develop true international co-operation.
Thus, as a global issues education conference for future leaders, it is designed to equip students with transferable lifelong skills such as negotiation and collaboration skills, conflict resolution, consensus building, confidence building, public speaking, critical thinking, internet literature research, writing skills and social etiquette.
Conference participation will also foster global citizenship.
