The Safer Future Youth Development Project is a registered non-profit, non-governmental, interdenominational, local organisation geared towards improving the lives of young people. The SFYDP was formed due to the poor quality of  living standards that even led to a decade long war. The ideology of this Project is to improve the lives of marginalised and deprived youths by providing free education in different technical and vocational skills. This training enables students to provide for themselves, while helping to reconstruct the poor economy and social conditions. Furthermore, the SFYDP strives to develop and maintain infrastructure in rural and remote areas by introducing alternate energy sources, mainly solar energy, providing life-skills training in secluded communities and improving the water situation by implementing rainwater harvesting systems and repairing water wells. To ensure the sustainability of the different projects, community integration and sensitisation are a key component to the  success of SFYDP. Since 1993, the SFYDP has successfully established various programmes and became well-known for the widespread impacts on youth training and rural development.
