The Prevention of plastic pollution through Sustainable development
by United Youth for Peace and Reconciliation (UYFPAR) (Philanthropic organization)
1st=United youth for peace and Reconciliation (UYFPAR), is a charitable organization based in Liberia, has two main goals; to restore peace and prevent the marine environment from plastic pollution.

The part of prevention is to inform and raise awareness to the world in the use, reduction and recycling of plastic, while enhancing Circular Economy. Our aim is to achieve this through educational seminars in schools, conferences and through joint actions with other NGOs, but mainly through sports!

We consider sports in Liberia to be as one of the best means to spread the message for environmental protection due to the fact that sports addressed to all ages and promotes a healthy well being. UYFPAR, we wanted to add also one more element to sports, environmental protection. We have seen many plastic bottles and waste from running or swimming events to end up in the streets in Liberia or into the oceans, so our commitment is to organize sustainable sport events, contributing to local communities, eliminating plastic pollution while addressing waste and their environmental footprints.

We want this commitment to be part of every sport event and sustainability to be built into every activity of the organization, rather than to be a slave on action. Our mission is to restore peace and eliminate ocean plastic pollution through preventive sustainable actions.

The 2nd part of our organization, is environmental restoration, and it is covered through street clean ups and voluntary actions to clean and support every community polluted by plastic.
