Restoring Community Visions International (RCV_ international) is a non-governmental, community-based organization. It was founded on 6th January 2014 by a group of focused individuals who observed that many youth in the community were school dropouts, fresh parents, unemployed, and idle, among other problems. Hence, they were poor, which led them to act outside the social norms of the society. The group understood this was a result of poor parent-child relationships, peer pressure, limited civic education, limited counseling and guidance, laziness, low acquisition of life skills, lack of role models, low self-esteem amongst some youth, high desire for individualism, high desire for leisure, rural urban migration, poor sensitization in government youth programs, and bad religious and cultural practices, among other causes.
Members of RCV_ international strongly believe that, by bringing youth to work together regardless of their religious and cultural backgrounds, education, gender, etc., and by engaging them in income-generating activities such as poultry and crop farming, entrepreneurship, and forestry, and by equipping them with some life skills, RCV_ international will change the situation from worse to better - hence achieving community development.
