Voices is multi-dimensional as adding value includes all facets of human existence. It has organized a peace building program through a political forum tagged ‘’Youth and Politics.’’ This featured youths from different groups on the Plateau as they discussed the way forward regardless of ethno religious affiliations. Voices has also led a campaign awareness program on the need for everyone to get a permanent voter’s card and to ensure that citizens do not sell their rights.

The organization believes in education especially for the younger generation living in rural communities. As such, Voices was able to reach out to two schools with books and other writing materials. It has also organized a skill acquisition program with the help of Mai Akwala Foundation where over 300 women were trained on different skills for self-reliance in other to reduce poverty among women and young girls.

There was a mega oral health outreach in Gonzi village where the community dwellers where lectured on oral health through our volunteer dentist. Free drugs were given to some with oral issues and about 99 of them got free tooth paste each. Hospitals were also visited and a lot of nursing mothers benefited from free pampers.

We have done others that we can’t even mention because of space. We are however grateful for the opportunity and privillage to put smiles on faces. We are ready to more because we love humanity.
