"May the flame of Candle hope and light for soon rehablitation of Victims of Burmese People and Earthquake victims in China. Heartfelt prayers for suffering and may the flame of candle go on shining for our friendship.
As YUBUPA, we have along way to go...this light should always show us a way together to reach to the world where help is needed." — Local ABC4All / PAKISTAN from Yuel Bhatti, Pakistan and PEACE

Youth Intercommunity Network is a youth led development network committed to the establishment of just and sustainable communities.
The initiative takes cognizance of the fact that the pace of change and development in any community will be determined by the local communities in all their diversity and capacity for bold and imaginative thinking and their determination in support of their own development.
It is our conviction that an effective development strategy is best delivered through community led initiatives and draws upon the diverse experience of local communities.
Youth Intercommunity Network functions to foster both youth led community and inter-community learning as an avenue of transfer of knowledge and skills towards positive change at all levels.
Through a diverse range of implementation strategies, Youth Intercommunity Network provides communities with a platform:
* To foster collaboration, partnerships and networks that inspire communities towards social justice, development and mutual understanding.
* To promote knowledge transfer and community learning within and between communities as an avenue towards sustainable community development.
* To promote community participation in determining their own development by introducing and supporting actions towards that end.

"Goes without saying. ABC4All is an exceptional entity that will surpass this number even before the set date. As a mentor, I will mobilize and lobby to ensure that this goal is met and we get more Mentors who realize that making a difference in someone's life is the best thing to do. Let's soldier on, we can do it because it can be done."
Thanks to ALL the Mentors for participating with ABC4All!
"Thanks also to all of us who have been affiliated with ABC4All for all the contributions and the pride we give to ABC4All and its affiliates." Erick Ochieng Otieno Kenya

Waleed from Egypt states:
"There is no doubt that TakingITGlobal is the most important online place. Only TIG can help young leaders all over the world to exchange our iIdeas and think together about achieving the best. With TIG there is no borders between us - only what we need is to be online to make new friendships between each other and respect one another. I have a dream that I would like to live to see the day that all youth leaders in all over the world from TIG will be the real leaders in their countries. Then we will have all what we need to reach our goals, not only for youth, but for our world and our next generations."
