International Youth Day 2021


At YPPD, we are committed to addressing climate change and building resilient communities for a sustainable future. As a designated contact point for the UNFCCC and accredited observer civil society to the Green Climate Fund, we actively engage in amplifying youth voices and advocate for impactful climate solutions.
Our efforts extend beyond advocacy to tangible action on the ground. Through targeted engagements with diverse stakeholder groups, we raise awareness about climate change issues and advocate for the full implementation of national adaptation programs.


our work in this area recognizes that young people, including children,
youth leaders and youth servers all bring experiences and perspectives
to the learning environment and, through formal and non-formal learning,
YPPD creates opportunities which. We therefore link policies and
practice for enhancing education in formal as well as non-formal areas.
Through our “Helping THEM for a Lifetime initiative”, we support children
through their care givers (mothers) in respective non-formal
entrepreneurship skills that enables them to take care of themselves and
the needs of their families

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

YPPD being the lead convener of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
Network of Sierra Leone (WASH-Net), our resolve is that no one dies as a result of preventable causes that related so accessibility to WASH services; and that these services are also helping to improve
performance in areas such as education for children, improved well-being and health.

Child Protection and Participation

Child Protection and safeguarding are at the very core of our childcentered interventions as an organization. Apart of creating the enabling environment here children can be safer and at all times, our programs further addresses the very root causes of child neglect, bad cultural beliefs, attitudes and practices, backed with weak enforcement of existing legislations and policies. What sets us apart is the peoplecentered approaches our advocates employs in ensuring that children everywhere are free from harm and are fully protected. YPPD further provides the required capacity for children and young people to
adequately express their views and hold duty-bearers to task
