A Dollar Campaign Against Terrorism


Hello fellow youths,
As we brace up for our next point of action as International Youths with a common interest to make our world a better place,that is the International Youths Conference on Counter-Terrorism,we also take time to look beyond that,beyond 2016-what do we stand to do more?

It is in this regard that we plan to kicked off worldwide activities and initiatives with our current and future partners,so as to move us,as an organization,from mere voices to being agents of real active change on the ground level. We don't want to remain the youth voices who never did anything active or substative on a practical level-that's what should make us different.
I hence call upon you to join hands and assist the A Dollar Campaign Against Terrorism which is an online fundraiser aimed at catering for our post conference activities.The real support the organization can get will always start from within,as chairty begins.Please find herewith  a poster for the same,share your social platforms (With the hash tag #ISupportIYAAT),print and post on your school/workplace notices,Anything to get it shared-make a point your self to at least donate as an initiative of your self for we must jointly deliver the better world we so much promised we will.
This world, with its institutions, belongs to the youths who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing systems and wars, they can exercise their birthright of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.
Discourage over-reliance on others and the older generation.Persuade yourselves to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker, the youth has a superior opportunity of being a greater change.There still is room enough.
Thank you.

The PVE Youth Blast is aimed to contribute to peaceful and sustainable societies. In fact, we believe that including youths in the pursuit of peaceful and inclusive societies free of Violent Extremism must remain one of the central aims for which PVE policies are created globally. This is on account of the inextricable link between the increasing number of youths joining violent and extremist groups and the increasing threat of such terror groups.
With the support of UNFPA Burundi Country Office, Youth Empowerment and Leadership Initiative (YELI-Burundi) in partnership with WORLD PEACE INITIATIVE, COMMON GROUND CENTER and WORLD MERIT BURUNDI are organizing the DIGITAL YOUTH CONSULTATION ON PVE (Preventing Violent Extremism).
THEME:Effective Cooperation for Building CommunityResilience Against Violent Extremism The International Youth Action Against Terrorism (IYAAT)in Partnership with theAfrican Initiative for Women in Africa (AIWA Forum) and YELI Burundiwill hold the maiden International Youths Conference on Counter-Terrorism from 4th to 6th February 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya. This is planned to involve Delegates from UN member countries.
In its Empowerment Program YELI has launched the Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLA) program to initiate savings and loan's competences among youth (Single Mothers, Deaf People, youth Clubs)
The IYCCT will bring together 200 youth Participants and leaders drawn from CVE (Countering Violent Extremism) impact countries.However,The IYCCT budget will only cover the Accommodation,meals and onsite transport (To and from the airport and during the conference) for 100 participants.The other 100 participants will be self sponsored.
After realizing a need to youth empowerment, The YELI Lead Team in partnership with a local Radio COLOMBE F.M proposed a radio program called Future Leaders Show with a mission to awaken youth to self-reliance, awareness and confidence.
The night of 8th February 2014, many Burundian families lost their loved ones and Were left empty-handed due to the floods and landslides which washed away All their belongings. YELI, recognizing a need, stepped in to assist in molding bricks and help to build some unsheltered families, victims of the flood from Buterere and enable these mostly hit families to start their life Afresh. This particular kind of support had successfully brought back hope and smile on these victims of the tragedy
At the time that Burundi which is a French speaking country, strives to succeed with its integration in the East African Community and current global village due to communication barrier. The Burundian government decided to offer a code of motivation for Burundians at large and young people in particular to improve their oral and written expression in English by introducing English classes in the school syllabus from primary school . Still, challenges related to the problems in English language which is a viable tool of communication at the market place in this global village and especially within this community, constitute a major obstacle to Burundian people in general, and especially the youth; Which in the end , still limit the youth`s potentiality at the market place.
