EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE FOR THE YEAR 2019

Eagles Youth Development Initiative (EYDI believes that a family is the most important part of life. To the organization it means that we share similar values and commitment to affect positive change in the communities. The true family culture and norm; parents, guardian, caregivers and children sit together as a family, make decisions as a family and share a calling to make a difference as a family. And this process will define who (EYDI) we are and what we stand for in 2019. By empowering young people we hope is that the future generations will also experience the joy of giving back to the vulnerable communities. “What greater way to perpetuate our morals and our friendship.”
Happy New Year 2019
