Some of our projects Rural Peace, Peace To All, My Right: My Property, Health Missions, Peace Festival, Farm for Peace are norrmally to bring development into communities where the youth are required to volunteers their service on the projects.

The Centre has also established a Youth Development Fund (YDF) to provide financial assistance to needy but brilliant students in basic schools, Junior High, Senior High Schools and University. The Centre would also lobby for scholarships for the students who need assistance.

The fund is also to help and encourage the youth in agricbusiness and other lucrative business venture since availiability of jobs is the major problem facing the youth...read more
