WHO WE ARE

Yepafrica was founded in 2007 by Paul Engelsman, a Human Resources executive who worked for Shell, Van Melle , MEXX and Vlisco a.i. The YEP foundation was registered in The Netherlands in May 2008.

A COUNTRY WHERE YOUTH HAS NO FUTURE IS A COUNTRY WITHOUT A FUTURE

YEP stands for Young Empowered Proud and we have developed into a top player in the area of Youth Empowerment. After 10 years experience with youth empowerment in The Gambia we have seen that youth with self-esteem can change families, communities and even whole villages and regions. We consider the Youth as the most important change agents for sustainable change and independency in developing countries. Therefore all our programs are focused on the investment in youth empowerment.

The foundation has a board of 4 people or more and is funded by sponsors . Besides the board YEP works together with many volunteers, Dutch Universities and entrepreneurs.

Our local YEP organisation is registered as Youth Organisations in the local countrie where we operate. Besides membership of the Local Youth Council Yep is also a member of the ECOWAS Youth Council. The local youth organisation is running an Empowerment Learning Centre from where we organise Empowerment & Entrepreneurship training programs, Awareness sessions around the Backway and a Service Club for young entrepreneurs.
