CYPLP is an organic, non profit, social impact organisation in the civil society space with a new voice, voluntary and inclusive, youth focused and loose membership; working for open society in line with the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) article 13, operating in line with articles 19 and article 20 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 22 of International  Covenant  on Civil and Political Rights, and articles 10 and 11 of African Charter on Human & Peoples Rights. We exist to translate and give breath to articles 19 and article 20 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights for everyday people in Nigeria and across Africa.

We are individuals, everyday people from different works of life coming together collectively to express, promote, pursue, and defend common interest in Nigeria and across Africa. We co-design creative and innovative homegrown solutions to local problems in our communities, preventing drug use among young people, combating transnational organized crimes and supporting criminal justice systems.

Mission and vision

To mentor and raise young social change champions at local communities in Nigeria and across Africa, sparking the spirit of volunteerism that will drive Africa’s self sufficiency and sustainability.

To create veritable platforms of engagement of young people, by young people and for young people, through small local actions that can spark big changes in our communities in Nigeria and across Africa.

General description of the CSO work in the anti-corruption area

We create and raise awareness leading to active citizenship and engagement with governments and institutions, for open governance that translates as good governance.

Specific description of the CSO work in relation to the UNCAC and the review mechanism of the UNCAC

Recognising the important role CSOs play in advocating for a transparent and inclusive review mechanism and advocating for Nigeria’s commitment to  the UNCAC, as well as developing a new strategic plan to be involved in the fight against corruption for the good of Nigerian children.

Our key activities over the years have been advocating for accountability and tracking government transparency for inclusive development.
