Youth Engaged for Development and Social Progress (YEDSP) is a non-profit organisation engaged in peacebuilding and development actions in the Democratic Republic of Congo in general and more particularly in the province of North Kivu. Created in 2018 in Goma, DRC in the context where there are the persistence of several challenges related to peace and development especially in the East of the country.
Therefore, we created YEDSP with the objective of contributing to the development of vulnerable communities and promoting the socio-economic progress of youth.
YEDSP ASBL has a dream of a world in which the youth take ownership of the duty of development through their commitment and a more sustainable world where the living conditions of communities are favorable.
Our mission is to enhance the well-being of communities by contributing to the social progress of youth and the development of vulnerable communities. We work to make young people aware of their potentials and equip them with the resources required to exploit them.
Our values are: commitment, solidarity and progress
