Day of Peace in London, England


London, UK - UPF-UK's September 23 commemoration of the International Day of Peace featured two speakers about youth development projects in London and an expert on the Sudan and Darfur.

The event coincided with UN Summit on the Millennium Development Goals with guest speakers theming their talks on Youth, Peace and Development. We had the pleasure of having Dr. David Hoile, an expert in Sudan and Darfur, Keldon Alleyne from Lewisham Youth Aid, and Seja Majeed from Vinspired, the youth volunteering organization, speaking at the event.

The evening kicked off with networking and appetizersKeldon Alleyne Youth Aid Lewisham speaking, and guests included prominent philanthropist Sheridan Mungal. Keldon and Seja talked about their respective organizations' roles in youth development in London and how clubs and societies can give young people a purpose in life and direct them away from crime and violence. Later guests added to the debate with Mr. Mungal and Alan Reigner explaining the importance of father figures and role models for inner city kids to prevent them from going astray.

Over all, the night proved a success with an edifying discourse on how to achieve one of the Millennium Development Goals and an opportunity to celebrate the UN International Day of Peace.
