Advocacy for the young in crisis ADYIC is a non-political and non-governmental organisation of Sierra Leonean youth volunteers.
Established in 2004, the organisation is based in Freetown and squarely preoccupied with the educating and sensitising of young people on critical issues to which they are vulnerable; and as the crisis world-wide (particularly in third World Countries) gradually move on the increase, young people have now been considered as perhaps the most vulnerable.
Such crises as violence, human trafficking, rape, HIV/Aids, prostitution, drug addiction, human right violation, etc have become the order of the day.
In fact, they have unavoidable become tropical issues, conspicuously taking prominence in many seminars, conference and symposia at both local and international levels. Today many people are being admitted to hospital due to HIV/AIDS. Many women are raped and more people trafficked by their fellow men.
There are more in mental homes; and we talk about remand homes and juvenile delinquencies. Inarguable, thought it could be observed that over Sixty percent of victims of the above circumstances are young people; and their being victims can be ascribed to immaturity and poverty with depression and despondency.
However, with the rapid increase in crises nowadays, there is every need for active participation in the elimination process, thereby complimenting every effort being made by local and international organisation in that vein.
ADYIC is therefore borne with this view in mind and it is hoped that pro-active engagement with every commitment and dedication in similar direction will ineluctable and unquestionable yield a positive dividend for the glory of the target group that lies ahead
