Youth Partnership for Peace and Development Benefits from the
UN-HABITAT Opportunity Youth Fund


The UN Habitat funded project, titled ‘Sustainable Youth Livelihoods through Vocational Skills Training’, implemented by the Sierra Leone based Youth Partnership for Peace and Development targets young people in the provincial district of Makeni, northern Sierra Leone. It aims to provide livelihood skills for a total of fifty male and female youths in the district who were both victims and perpetrators of the decade long civil war which engulfed the entire country claiming thousands of lives and devastating the country’s social and economic infrastructure. It provides livelihood skills for them through training in tailoring and textile design for one year duration.

The project is an attempt to address the void left by development partners including the Sierra Leone Government in the process of national reconstruction and peace-building. The implementation of the project is based on the recommendations of the Sierra Leone Truth and Reconciliation Commission on youth which states that in any development intervention youth involvement and participation should be made priority, and the 10 priority action points for youth welfare and development developed by the World Programme of Action for Youth (WPAY) to the Year 2000 and beyond with its 15 points agenda for young people development and active inclusion for societal and global change.
