Youth Ambassador for Peace Award #Burkina Faso
On March 20, 2021, IAYSP Burkina Faso worked in partnership with Reseaux des Jeunes pour la Protection de l’Environnement (RJPE), with eighty participants, to organize the presentation of Youth Ambassador for Peace at the National School of Customs (Ecole National des Douanes) in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
First of all, MC (Mr. Pang Il Diarra and Djelika Guigma) provided the orientation of the ceremony, followed by an opening remark from Mr. Sidi Guigma; a representative of Ambassador for Peace. Thereafter, a presentation detailing the RJPE association was exihibited by Mr. Gilles Zigani, statutory auditor of this association; and Mr. Steve Ramde, the General-Secretary of RJPE.
Additionally, one more presentation about IAYSP was given by Bokkun Nonguierma, the IAYSP Sub-Regional President North Africa. This presentation covered the vision, role, and goal of IAYSP for Youth. In the next step of the program, the General-Secretary of UPF Burkina Faso, Mr. Thomas Diarra, provided explanations of the Five Universal Principles. These principles are very important for the orientation of YSP’s Youth Ambassadors for Peace.
Ms. Divine Kabore, the President of IAYSP Burkina Faso, announced the new Youth Ambassador for Peace, Ms. Laurelle Kere, and YSP officially presented the award.
Ms. Laurelle Kere was honored to receive this distinction, and she was excited to promote and take ownership of establishing peace in our nation. Also, all members of RJPE ecstatic that their President had been bestowed such an award, and they want to work together with IAYSP for peace and education of youth. We received congratulatory words from Ms. Divine Kabore, who focused on Ms. Laurelle Kere and her new mission.
In the end, YSP signed a memorandum of agreement between IAYSP and RJPE.
