The debates are supported by the EAC Secretariat, Ministries responsible for EAC Affairs in the Partner States and German International Cooperation (GIZ).

At USIU, various speakers are expected to address the students, key among them representatives of East African legislative Assembly (EALA), East Africa Business Council (EABC), MEAC, and the EAC Secretariat.

The aim of the EACYAP holding sensitization forums is to create awareness on the EAC among university students and lecturers. Previous sensitization fora have been held in Moi University, Eldoret; Kenyatta University Law campus; and Egerton University, attracting about 300 participants, including lecturers, from each of the universities.

More of such forums will be held in other universities with Technical University set to host the next one on 4 April 2014.

Currently, EACYAP is collaborating with the MEAC and the EAC Secretariat to hold EAC Awareness weeks spreading through March to April in 7 Universities in Kenya: University of Nairobi, Egerton, Maseno, KCA, Nazarene, Moi and Catholic Universities.

The forum are led and coordinated by University students identified in a competitive process dubbed the EAC University Students Debate.

The two best performing candidates from each Partner State are designated as EAC Youth Ambassadors to spearhead awareness programmes among the youth in their respective Universities and Partner States.

The current Ambassador to Kenya is Ms. Effie A. Omondi, deputised by Mr Charles Mwangi.
