VISION Highly informed, empowered, healthy youth and communities MISSION KYCs mission is to serve as an empowerment centre for the youth and communities, equipping them with life-enhancing skills through: economic empowerment, leadership & governance, health, environmental conservation programmes aimed at making them productive and self reliant Why target the youth? The youth form the section of the community which is a high-risk group faced with difficult circumstances because majority live in poverty, are out of school, they are married off while still young especially girls, they are sexually and physically abused, they are victims of retrogressive cultural practices that enhance vulnerability. The lack of respect for young people's basic rights manifested by these situations leave them vulnerable to HIV infection.

I'm Johnson Kings Finley from Southport Liverpool, England, I'm giving a testimony about Dr. White the great Herbalist, he has the cure to all manner of diseases, he cured my HIV/AIDS virus of 8yrs, though I went through different websites I saw different testimonies about different spell casters and herbalist, I was like: "Many people have the HIV cure why are people still suffering from it?" I thought of it, then I contact Dr. White via email ([email protected]), I didn't believe him that much, I just wanted to give him a Trier, he replied my mail and Needed some Information about me and also ask me to make a payment for the medicine. he prepared it (CURE) and sent it to me via a Courier service, I took the medicine as prescribed by him and I went for check-up 2 weeks after finishing the medicine, I was tested HIV negative, if you are HIV positive, Hepatitis, Herpes, waste your time no more. Contact him via: [email protected] or +2349091844595
I GUARANTEE YOU WILL BE THE NEXT TO GIVE TESTIMONY ABOUT THIS GREAT HEALER WHEN YOU CONTACT HIM.
