Inauguration of YSP (Youth and Students for Peace) in Albania
May 13, 2019 – Tirana, Albania
YSP Albania was launched on Monday, May 13, 2019, at the main hall of the European University of Tirana; one of the main universities in Albania. Youth and Student for Peace (YSP) is a global family of young people committed to advancing world peace by empowering youth and students to become global citizens through character education and peace projects that support the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Therefore, we are very inspired to start on this new journey with the young people here in our country of Albania.
One hundred twenty young people were in attendance. Top-students, project managers, NGO directors, Ambassadors for Peace and members of CARP Albania gathered together to launch this new providential organization.
Chairman of UPF Albania, Mr. Gaqo Apostoli, greeted the participants with empowering words and with a beautiful song.
The keynote address was given by the Director of YSP Europe, Mrs. Jeong-Hye Yeom. Enthusiastically, she shared the vision and goals of YSP. The participants were touched by her motherly heart.
In the end, we had the pleasure to appoint twelve Youth Ambassadors for Peace. The certificates were presented by the Albanian National Leader, Rev. Gani Rroshi and Mrs. Yeom.
