What makes your idea unique?

YOPA is a community-based organization set up by a group of people from different backgrounds with a view to supporting the voiceless and the underprivileged people thruogh provision of basic needs, Education, Health care, Capacity building , Small economic initiatives, and Advocacy of human rights, with emphasis on public awareness creating on the plight of these destitude people who live in appalling conditions.

However the social and the economic problems facing these poor members of our society are so serious that we can not tackle them all alone. So, we would feel obliged if you would offer us assistance in improving these marginalized peopl’s lives and reducing their suffering whose largest goups include; impoverished families, beggars, street children, war widows, the disabled, abandoned children, orphans, ethnic minorities, children infected with HIV/AIDS and other social outcasts who have no place in their society.
