WELCOME TO YARPTI
Youths for Human Rights Protection and Transparency Initiative (YARPTI) is a youth-driven, youth-led, and youth-imagined human rights charity in Nigeria that protects, establish, engage and empower young people including women and children. The organisation works with young people between age 13 -39 on issues including health, education, human rights, environment, empowerment, peace building and compassion . The guiding believe is that helping the deprived youths of Nigeria to conserve and develop their physical and mental strength through education, entrepreneurial training and improved living conditions is the right way to ensure their viability to society and fight poverty.
Protect, establish, engage and empower young people including women and children is our mission.We understand these words as not only an oath but also a commitment. YARPTI gives young people the platform to pursue a better future together. We strive to not only give youth a voice but also provide them with the tools to succeed in a world where the odds are stacked against them
Half of Nigeria’s population is under the age of 25. The need for youth leadership is more pressing than ever before. There are more young people in Nigeria now. We catalyze the unbounded energy that young people already have towards a shared collective goal and collective impact.
OUR WAY INTO THE FUTURE enables ten integrated strategic priorities that build the capacity of youths and communities through:
Compassionate Presence: We supply food to orphanage homes, Internally displaced persons camp , disable homes and prisons
Empowerment: We empower young people .Through skills programmes unemployed youths and school dropouts are able to become productively engaged and better qualified to obtain jobs. We also embark on clean water projects for rural communities. We believe that nobody deserves to die from dirty water
Education:To empower all young people for a better future, our education unit works to achieve three objectives:
1) every child must have access to school,
2) all young people must stay in school and
3) all young people must have successful learning outcomes
Human Rights: we help fight abuses of human rights and free people jailed just for voicing their opinion
Advocacy: We campaign for social, economic and cultural rights. We promote good practice, good governance and result driven campaigns
Health Care We offer health education, nutritional advice and donation of drugs and treated mosquito nets
Child Abuse : We envision a world in which all children are protected from abuse including sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.
Environment : We hope for more socially and environmentally sustainable societies
Peace Building : We manage, mitigate, resolve, and transform central aspects of conflict in Nigeria through official diplomacy, civil society peace processes, and informal dialogues, negotiations, and mediations.
Crisis and Disaster Response : We are committed to offer help victims of natural disaster such as floods, drought, or conflict that can destroy crops or force people from their homes
Our vision is to be the leading human rights charity in Africa. We believe that human rights cultures are built by individuals and groups whose rights are threatened, suppressed or do not exist. They are strengthened by organizations such as ours, working collaboratively, creatively and with integrity.We believe that social change begins at the community level and gains effectiveness through partnership with people who share similar needs, values and expertise. We are guided by a strong commitment to equality and diversity in our work to build social and legal change that is long-term and sustainable.
