Young Professionals For Development

“Consolidating experience of young experts for participation in development“

About Us

YPD was formed as a Community Based Organization (CBO) in 17th May 2003 at the 19th session of the UN-HABITAT Governing Council at Gigiri, Nairobi. Colleagues present felt the realization of lack of youth exposure and the need to consolidate gained experience for constructive participation in sustainable development, therefore, a need to venture on activities and development of the entire community. YPD was registered as a non-profit making Non Governmental Organization (NGO) in 26th June 2008.
