Abidjan, Ivory Coast - The commitment of Youth for Peace

More than 300 young people partecipated two weeks ago to the launch of Jeunes pour la Paix (Youth for Peace), the Ivory Coast branch of the movement of the Community of Sant'Egidio that around the world promotes the culture of peace and friendship with the poor among the
new generation.
In the the Community House in Abidjan gathered many students of the secondary schools of the capital city of Ivory Coast, coming both from the Plateau, the city center, as well from the suburbs of Marcory and Treichville. 
The speeches, testimonies, songs that marked that day have given voice to a willingness to be close to the different situations of marginalization that are often characteristic of the great African city, drawing a perspective of large commitment
with the poorest. The proposal of a joyful and active solidarity involved the hearts of those young students, melting with the enthusiasm of their age. 
In Abidjan, as in Malawi, Mozambique and other African countries, Youth for Peace dreams of being an active player who makes the continent a better place.
