Poverty is a never-ending cycle leading to crime, violence, domestic abuse, drug trafficking, overpopulation and illiteracy. Disengaged youths are more vulnerable to depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, and radicalization. EdeYouth strives to break this cycle of poverty and bring forth a generation of leaders and global citizens. We started servicing the community in the United States on April 30th, 2016.
Our goal is to enrich the youth lives by providing opportunities to build strong moral, family values through job creation. Targeted groups are from foster care, shelters, rape victims, single mothers, youth from our communities, creating an outlet for emotional healing. EdeYouth helps our youth to imagine new possibilities for their future and become models within their communities
