    I am very happy to see such an important project proposal from Young Peace Builders in Sierra Leone. I personally have no doubts in Herbert’s commitment in ensuring effective youth participation in governance and through this freedom of speech project, he is sure to make a huge difference together with his team of dedicated youth. I am hopeful to see this project being approved and kick-off. true NETWORKING indeed. looking forward to benefit too

    I will strongly commend Herbert’s Bangura project initiatives.
    With the scope of his global idea and integrated empowerment to support and to transform the youth and young people of sierra leone. This have really prove that a new era has come to promote good and better youth participation in all area of National Development and social tranformation within a target youth and young people as the key actors.

    I therefore call all youth and young people of sierra leone to come out in unity, peace and prosperity in embrassing Herbert’s Bangura project vision as a true citizen of a Golden land.

    I also expect other interesting international partners,, organizations, philanthropists and Beaurea of goverment to support in promoting MDGs project through Herbert Bicool Bangura vision movement.

    This idea is just too fantastic. Young people in Sierra Leone have moved up from the doldrums of poverty and ashes of civil war to becoming agents of change with the little initiative they have to promote sustainable development.

    I do guaranntee and have trust in the leadership of this young organization to create the platform to share skills that will forever change lives. Well done.

    • Herbert

      Thank you sir for endorsing our organization. We are dedicated to ensuring effective participation of youth in governance through an open space for expression of opinions.

    This is exemplary move. Herbert!! I hope you get all the support required to establish a forum as such where youth can collaborate and integrate their diverse interests to developing our nation. I am convicted that youth abroad and beyond will readily accept a forum like this where a platform would have been created for supportive inclusion of youth in thier efforts toward helping those in need.

    • Herbert

      I agree with you jeff, the youth abroad and beyond will definitely accept and appreciate an open space where they can freely express their opinions (PeaceItOut), share and learn from each other. Thank you for the encouragement and support.

    Reading through this Young Peace Builders’ project proposal, i have come to realize that it has a potential of creating a bigger impact on the rising voices global project. I am aware that youth have a lot of issues and they are mostly affected when decisions are made either bad or good but they are always in touch with their communities and are aware of every happenings in the villages, towns and cities. With this kind of project proposal, Young Peace Builders are sure to create a forum / open space for interaction, collaboration, exchange and partnership. Well done young peace builders and best of luck with your proposal.

      Indeed Mohamed, if we must achieve sustainable peace and development, we must create an open space where all will have an opportunity to peace it out (freely express) their opinions.
