Short description:
Africa Youth for Peace and Development organization was formed 1995 and was finally registered in the year 2000 under the Ministry of Youth and Sport in Sierra Leone, as a voluntary, youth development organization that aims at organizing, empowering and creating opportunities for youth in difficult circumstances.
The organization has been working in the areas on peace, HIV-aids, homeless youths, war children, health and sanitation, youth development to enlarge its involvement in the change of the society. That is done creating youth workshop training, seminars and conferences on how to bring everlasting peace and sustainable development for the minorities, the nation and the world as a whole.
The founders of the AYPD, after having seen harsh realities as a war's result and the consequent violence galore which follows, have decided to form the organization with the vision of continental integration for peace and development for youth. It is the belief of this organization that violence achieves no meaningful goal.
