Mr. Ateki Seta Caxton is the Executive Director of Network for Solidarity, Empowerment and Transformation for All in Cameroon, where he works to empower youth, and promote peace and democracy. During his fellowship, he is focusing on the role of technology and social media in engaging youth in politics, and will explore how online campaigns can be used as a tool to address legal reforms. Following his fellowship, Mr. Caxton plans to develop a campaign to reduce the voting age from 20 to 18 in the 2018 general elections in Cameroon. He will also develop a strategy to mobilize African youth to participate in the African Movement for Democracy network.
