"We have to cherish and protect peace in the interest of children, because we are not only the future leaders, but also the current leaders in training."
Name

Country of origin
Ghana
Current country
Ghana
Age
14
Theme
Violence

In the Ghanaian community where Hillary lives, there is a lot of violence. It stops children from going to school or playing safely outside their homes. Hillary is convinced that the situation will improve once the voices of children and young people are heard and when there is more input from young people in the community. He would like to establish 5 youth clubs, with 15 children each, that promote peace within the communities. Within these clubs, he also wants to bring together the different religions, so as to create a bridge between them and the communities at large. Hillary will join the youth clubs and help them set up various activities to promote peace.
