We do this online and offline and free services at all times. We also commit to translating sdg 16+ into concrete realities by educating, sensitizing and raising awareness to young people on the danger of drug abuse, organized crimes, corruption amongst others.

Organization's priorities and work in relation to commitment:

Children and young people living for peace (CYPLP) is a not for profit, voluntary association and social impact organization in Nigeria. We work with and for the good of most vulnerable children, youths and women, underrepresented and marginalized groups of children, youth and women living in hard to reach communities across Nigeria using our platform to amplify their voices for inclusive development. We use our tailored social intervention programs to engaged citizens and communities to participate in governance and take decisive actions on policies and programs of the government as it affects them for their betterment and social well being. Our focus and thematic areas of operations are; peace building and conflict resolution, preventing violent extremism (PVE), countering hate speech, promotion of rule of law and democracy for good governance, mitigating illicit financial flow and drug abuse among young people, migration, de-radicalization, human rights and justice, and sustainable development goals (SDG's). As an organization with special interest in children, youths and women, we work through evidence based approach in marginalized communities across Nigeria, localizing the sustainable development goals(SDG's) and at the same time accelerating implementations before 2030 so that no one will be left behind. The sustainable development goals (SDG's) are part of the core components of our thematic areas that we give adequate attention because of the enormous benefits it has to offer humanity in the long run. Our objectives as an organization are to reawaken the consciousness of the citizens through education, sensitization and advocacy programs to engage them meaningfully both online and offline so they can get involved and take positive actions to hold their government and political leaders (duty bearers) accountable including our institutions for advancement of good governance and democracy as we target to achieve the agenda of 2030 together. We have a strategic work plan of co-ordinated activities and programs that geared towards marginalized groups and we work to see to that these marginalized groups are not left behind in the scheme of things, we carry them along with program activities such as building their capacities through vocational trainings, entrepreneurial skills development for sustainable livelihoods and also through leadership training programs initiatives. Our program activities timelines are monthly and we target the most vulnerable populations and communities for our program activities engagements. Covid 19 response in most cases by our Government in Nigeria speaks to SDG16 and around human right and justice to people and planet. Our commitment to defending and promotion of human rights is becoming more to the front than ever before, as we work closely to monitor and document right violations of citizens at grassroots during and in the post Covid19 era. We also working on how to activate citizens to recover and contribute to peaceful coexistence and inclusive society for sustainable development. We will continue to work as paralegals and community based legal first aid clinic to the voiceless, enabling access to justice for all and building effective and accountable institutions at all levels for inclusive development.
