Youths participated in a cleaning exercise that was organised by FDID (SL) on the 8th of May 2010. These youths were formal combatants that fought in the eleven years old civil war in the country. We as a civil society organization saw the need to engage various youth organizations in a bid to clean the central business district of the capital Freetown. This area is densely populated with a lot of business activities going on which makes this environment very filthy on a daily basis. We engaged, dialogued and lobbied with these youths to join us to clean their own environment. These transformed youths came out in their numbers to clean their environment. This is to show that we as an organization have being successful in transforming these youths to be positive and useful citizens of their various communities.
