FOR THE YOUTH.BY THE YOUTH.TO THE WORLD

The podcast assimilates between live panel discussions, live performances, commitment making, pre-recorded interviews and messaging content, which dives deep into the heart of identified issues respectfully but without fear, favour or prejudice.

 

It is a platform created to provide content by the youth, for the youth and to the world. It raises awareness, provides solutions, inspires, holds accountable and invites engagement with all stakeholders on the multifaceted topic of peace.
