aka CYPLP; is a social enterprise working for inclusive and sustainable Africa. We are voice to the voiceless.
CYPLP is not for profit, voluntary association of people taking lead together to configure social good in their communities where they live through small local actions that do yield greater impacts. We raise and mentor young volunteers for Africa we want.
At the heart of what we do, is power of imagination for human capital empowerment including promotion of transparency and accountability for good governance.
We design small but impactful social solutions to dispel, disrupt and deconstruct negative narratives, then activate and catalyze citizens by putting information in their hands for actionable social-good.
We came to help lift people out of poverty through agriculture as sustainable solution. Use of technology, creativity and innovations to re-engineered social change.
Recognizing the relevance of Agenda 2030, our effort is geared at achieving SDGs through partnership and colloboration.
Convinced about UNSCR 2250, we are creating more spaces for young people from local to global peace champions.
Realizing the importance of Agenda 2063; with a mindset of Africa we want, we are synergizing with other like-minded Africans all over the world to make this agenda a concrete reality.
Confirming that peace is what we need for progressive West Africa, we shall pursue passionately for the translation and attainment of ECOWAS Agenda 2020.
Can we be more inclusive in things we do as change agents? How can we defend and protect the rights of most vulnerables in hard to reach communities? How can we help demand for quality education, access to affordable health care at grassroot, promotion of water, sanitation and hygiene? Speak up on climate change and our environment? Demand for good governance, affordability and access to internet as enabler to the poor, especially women in rural communities etc? All these are why we are here.
We are here to promote youths and women’s participation in politics and leadership process, and to galvanize youth and women power in building resilience to corruption, drug abuse, radicalization, violent extremism leading to terrorism for global peace.
CYPLP has chosen to target the poorest parts of the society, recognizing that these are most vulnerable to violent conflict, abuse and neglect including HIV and AIDS. We work to localize, translate and interpret what Sustainable Development Goals mean to the rural poor. Connecting children and young people to tangible benefits by simplifying what SDGs is all about to them. Children are SDGs and are the ones that will live it.
Using sport, dance, music and drama to communicate our programs have yielded measurable results on the lives of our target groups over the years, including out of school children.
We work through schools, orphanages and slums with core intent of creating peace of mind to vulnerable children and young people in Africa so that no one is left behind.
To educate and enlighten young people on the culture of peaceful coexistence, unity in diversity, mutual respect for one another throughout Africa.
To mentor and raise young social change champions in Africa, spark the spirit of volunteerism among Africans that will drive Africa’s self sufficiency and sustainability.

Since my desire to volunteer with CYPLP organization, it has open a lot of opportunities especially my trip to Egypt to represent the organization for a training; Preventing Radicalization and Extremism Leading to Terrorism. Those whom I met where people I never thought of. My perception of so many things has changed and knowledge increased.
I was reluctant coming for this workshop – “Young Community Leaders Initiative”. I didn’t really understand it, but I encouraged myself to attend and am glad I did. My mindset has changed on so many things. I have learn new things, and old things in new ways. Initially, I thought my community is where I live. But No, this program presented a new dimension to it, that community starts with me, then my family, neighbors, friends and colleagues, including the people we meet each day. And that if we are to change the world, we can influence change from ourselves, to our family, neighbors, friends and people we meet. That was something unimaginable to me and I thank CYPLP Team for this opportunity. I will go out there and be the change I want to see, and change my community. Thank you Mr Dennis for this wonderful initiative.

“I thank CYPLP for bringing this program – Road Safety Awareness to my school @ Government Boys College, Kaduna. Before now, I knew some of the things that are taught to us today. But I never knew most of them the way I have now.
One thing I enjoyed about the program was that, it was informative yet entertaining such that all of us were carried along.
I will try my best to pass on this information to my peers and also take to volunteering to drive change in my community. This is best ever experienced program in my life so far. Thank you”.

This program TAX EDUCATION is timely but not everyone will understand it, especially the theme – “when it matters most”. I and my colleagues are happy. We now know why our parents pay tax and should be paying tax. I am empowered through this program to know that I can hold Government to accountable and demand for open governance and transparency as citizen. My take away is that as I grow, I will pay my tax, and not just pay but pay it into the right source for expected development. Thanks CYPLP Team and please reach out to others like me too in other schools, so that we can have more voices for amplification in future. God bless.
