Camp for Peace Liberia Collaborates with 18 Youth Organizations to Celebrate International Youth Day

Camp for Peace Liberia collaborates with 18 youth organizations to celebrate International Youth Day 2018. The celebration which started on Saturday, August 11 brought together over 150 youths and volunteers from various organizations and communities in Montserrado and Margibi Counties.  On Saturday morning they assembled at the Parker Paint junction to conduct a massive sweeping of the community, cutting grass and filling in cracks and holes on the main road from the Parker Paint junction to Coca Cola factory.  The youth consider the road repair as high priority since cars and other vehicles do not move smoothly and so traffic congestion causes delay in traveling and movements. This was done to showcase the potential young people possess in contributing to national development.

This year’s celebration is being held under the theme, “Safe Spaces for Youth”.  This theme promotes not only youth’s right to participate in decision-making processes, but also the role played by society and governments in creating and maintaining an environment that is safe for and inclusive of youth.  Providing safe space enables young people to come together, engage in activities related to their diverse needs and interests, participate in decision making processes and freely express themselves. Camp for Peace Liberia and its networks seek to provide that space through a platform that motivates and teaches young people about their responsibilities, providing opportunities for civic engagement, and encouraging them to participate in Peace, Security and Development.For more on this story, please check below.
