As a youth empowerment agency, we continue to have the honor and privilege of serving and we pride ourselves on providing the continued assistance to create the highest level of impact.
We place plenty of emphasis on areas that affect the welfare and livelihood of Sierra Leonean youths and we believe that by working together with the young people, we will collectively improve lives, prosper communities and contribute to the sustainable development of our country
YARDO-SL is committed to empowering young people to overcome poverty by creating an enabling platform for young people to interact, identify and/or build their capacity to proffer sustainable solutions to problems affecting their communities through multiple and integrated approaches in Agriculture, Environmental Protection, Governance, and Public Health in order to achieve a better society for all.
We work towards a just society that is free from poverty, hunger, environmental hazards, diseases, and inequalities.
“Young people are the future. Enhancing and promoting their skill set will increase their potential to contribute to sustainable development”
