  1. I am a Sierra Leonean national that resides in Sierra Leone. I am currently the National Secretary General of Youth Alliance for Justice and Peace. A youth organisation that sincerely came togather to protect the welfare of youth and other vulnerable people in Sierra Leone.

    We found your youth programmes highly interesting but we are highly dissapointed that these programmes are not meant for organisations that are in the developing world that are honestly trying to bring correct change via basic human rights by providing equal opportunities to all.

    Excluding organisations like ours that are from the developing world from your highly influencial trainings would do more harm to us in the battle to realise our targeted goal, which is to sincerely eradicate poverty in the developing world. Without quality trainings and education the realisation of our goal will never come true.

    With regards to the above, we ask for your future programms to include people from the developing world and not just europe.

    1. Dear Mahmud,
