Our objectives of include promotion and empowerment of the youths particularly those on the streets through enlightenment, reconciliation with families, education and motivation with a goal to reduce the number of the youths roaming the streets and eventually, getting them all off the streets to be a better people both for themselves and the society at large.
The encounter of the youths with vicious circle of poverty leading to lack of quality family virtues, unemployment, falling educational standards among other issues have impacted greatly on the psyche of our youths, especially in the last two decades, making the large population of our youths in the country to be uneducated, unemployable and highly vulnerable leading to drug use.
The combined effects of all these usually lead to dejectedness, public rejection, unworthy feeling, depression and youth restiveness, making them to embrace vices like rape, murder, kidnapping, drug abuse, hemp smoking and other hard drugs like cocaine, heroin, etc. alongside other sundry crimes.
