Ending Youth Violence in Politics (EYVP)

Summary

Due to the persistent violence mostly perpetuated by youths during political activities in Sierra Leone, this project will gear towards bringing youths together through organized outdoor inter-community SOCIAL ACTIVITIES (sports) where they will have opportunity to interact with one another since social activities are easy means of bringing people together more especially youths. We will use this medium to preach a message on NO VIOLENCE BY YOUTHS IN POLITICS especially during and after election

Challenge

From Experience referencing past election activities within the country, youths have been the center of concern causing absolute unrest during and after elections within the country. And what is more worrying is that youths hold greater percentage of the country's population and are mostly uneducated through the formal sector- thus have always been easily prevailed upon by selfish self-centered politicians for their own purpose at their own expense which has lethally set the country at risk

Solution

This is to encourage and motivate youths to stay away from violence - all strategies embedded are to harness a none violent platform come next general elections in Sierra Leone March 2018 and after. And now that election campaigns have started and voting is next door, implementation of this project will be a perfect fit to minimize or even eradicated heightened violence mostly orchestrated by angered youths during election processes.

Long-Term Impact

Even before project ends, majority of youths within the country would have become fully aware about the effects of political violence and violence in general. The rate of violence perpetuated by youths during and post-political activities would have reduced drastically, also, Political parties would have taken the full mantle of responsibility to guide and caution their party youth supporters from all forms of political violence. The direct beneficiaries will be 200,000 youths and the nation.
