Resource mobilization, partnership and donor coordination
The Youth Press and Development Organisation is a non profit organisation whose focus is to use sport to impact health education on personal hygiene and environmental awareness. However, the YPDO believes that not every child can participate in sport hence this initiative of music being a medium of community collaboration is the right vehicle to help the children learn about health challenges. The YPDO also has a team of trained local volunteers in delivering the information once the brass band equipment and musical instruments are available to the children. We a targeting over 1000 kids in delivering the message.
