Short description:
PADRI is a comprehensive youth and community development initiative designed to identify the needs of different communities through its comprehensive research and mobilization skills to enable it undertake viable and sustainable development projects. It also addresses several key issues facing young people such as teenage pregnancy, adolescence drug users, gangs, youth succumbing to various addictions, violence and other social vices.


PADRI considers the elements of youth’s lives such as family structures, neighbourhoods, lack of home, peer groups who conspire to create negative environment and limit their choices but, realizing that thorough its programmes, many young people are able to overcome what others may consider ‘risky’ homes, lives and environments and succeed at school as community members and as members of developed society.
