The establishment of the Organization of African Unity (since 2002, African Union) took place on May 25, 1963 when the leaders of 30 out of the 32 independent States on the continent signed its statute in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Today the African Union has 55 members and, among the goals established, are:
- cultural and educational cooperation

- 4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
