Since the inception of the organization it has carried out series of programmes and activities both in and outside the Gambia which are all geared towards making the world a better place for human survival.
   In this respect, among others an International camp also referred to as International Youth Summer School was well thought of where youths will gather to acquire knowledge and skills needed to develop an aptitude for peace building, to discuss issues affecting them and map out strategies of resolving them. The success of the first international camp held in 2005 at Gambia College in September supported by Concern Universal inspired us to make the activity an annual event.
