The Youth Partnership for Peace and Development( YPPD) is a youth empowerment think tank that was established in August of 2004 to enhance the capacity of young people to promote Peace, Human Rights, Justice, Good Governance, and Democracy, as well as the creation of open societies that promote Sustainable development. Since its establishment in Sierra Leone, the organization has been able to increase youth understanding to finding practical approaches to building wholesome functioning societies that promotes peace and mutual co-existence. From a modest beginning in 2004, with only a country office in Freetown, the organization has grown to an extent that it now has focal points and programmes running in 3 countries in West Africa and with Rwanda from Eastern Africa. The Youth Partnership for Peace and Development over the past years has worked tremendously to build the capacity of young people across the Sierra Leone and the MRU sub-region, to become agents of positive change. The work of YPPD has captivated the minds of civil society, the donor community, policy makers, governments, the ordinary, and individuals of all works of life.
