Forum for the Development of Young People

VIctor Moinina's campaign calls for giving youths a chance to be part of the development of their local communities and countries. Situated in Freetown, the Sierra Leone, Forum for the development of young people has been a leading youth development institution that caters for the social educational needs of school children. This is done through student pilot projects on maternal mortality and hosting a national conversation with the Political Affairs Department of the African Union Commission. As the CEO and Founder of this institution, Victor Moinina has been the brain behind the work of this institution. Through his work, he has been pivotal in creating a transformative drive with a simple message of hope and inspiration, based on his simple and proactive activities.

CAMPAIGN OBJECTIVES

To give the youths a platform to improve on their skills and know how, based on social principles.

HOW THE OBJECTIVES WERE ACHIEVED

With financial contributions from members and some partners, we ensure that our objective is being attained within the shortest possible time.

CAMPAIGN INNOVATIONS

1. National Inter-Secondary School quizzes and Debating Championships
2. Voluntary tutorials for pupils of St. Joseph Secondary School and Dynamic International School
3. A student pilot project on maternal mortality (Mamaye)
4. A national conversation on Democracy and Governance Trends with a special focus on Women's Inclusion in Politics
5. Upcoming projects that include the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 5 (achieve gender equality and empower women and girls) in Sierra Leone and a business and Educational Empowerment Summit as a post-Ebola reconstruction project.

CAMPAIGN IMPACT

Identifying the next generation of orators and speakers; building new business leaders with creative abilities; ensuring there is blood if pregnant women require transfusions when in labour; encouraging community members to help in the administration of the health centres through financial contributions; advocating for government intervention in promoting better sanitation and safe water in public health centres; advocating for a national youth parliament to be established in Sierra Leone; and advocating against rape and other sexual and gender-based violations.

CHALLENGES FACED

Since we started, we have been funding our activities through monthly contributions of members and therefore our work has been quite minimal.

LESSONS LEARNT

Partnerships have led us to make many strides and attain success in our areas of work, which is youth development. Service to humanity has been the main source of our inspiration.
