Youth in Action for Development (YAD) is a registered national nonprofit with Head Office in Kenema District, in Sierra Leone, working with the youth and for the youth to promote and build peace and democracy through campaign against ethnic based politics, promote gender equality, social freedom, free education, self-reliance through skill training, self-help ventures and income generation schemes,  minimize violence and conflict through dialogues, sensitization campaigns and social mobilization activities

Youth in Action for Development (YAD) is working to ensure that education becomes a human right for everyone; politics becomes detribalized and de-regionalized; youths, women, children and adults are given equal rights, so that there shall be a developed nation called Sierra Leone. Some of YAD’s projects include, but not limited to health, capacity, education, democracy advocacy campaigns, peace rallies, educational publications, etc. The Organization works with local, national and international partners. YAD is a membership-based Organization.

At this difficult times in Sierra Leona compounded by the dreadful Ebola outbreak, YAD is striving hard to maintain its reputation in community building and development. YAD in collaboration with its German partner, Fambul Tik e.V, has shipped 32 hospital beds with mattresses and 3 palettes of medical stuff to Sierra Leone. We are working on a second shipment of 35 beds and more medical stuff in 5 weeks time due to lack of enough space in the already dispatched 40 foot container. The beds and medical stuff are to be delivered to various health posts in Kenema district including the epicenter in Kenema city.

Education shall become a human right for everyone
