We have seen progress.
This can be seen in the rate of renounciation of membership of Cult members in our Universities.
Students are becoming more and more aware of the vices of cultism and violence even in our secondary schools.

Finance and Funding of projects is our major obstacle. We will need any assistance we can get, because we believe in global peace.

ACTIONS: What actions have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the first half of the Decade?

The Unarmed Youth (TUY), set up in August 1st 2004, is a non-governmental, non -religious, non - ethnic, non - profit, social organization, set up to promote peace, love and harmony among youths in the world.

The organization was formed due to, the present state of the world's future leaders: THE YOUTH.
The Youths of today are the leaders of tomorrow is a popular adage, but what future would these youth have? Now that a large number of the youths indulge themselves in militant groups, cultism, armed-robbery, Hired-Assassins, suicide bombers or engaged in anti-social activities and fraudulent practices.

This organization is aimed at youth disarmament and non-violence. TUY is aimed at making youths to see the future without war, and to take dialogue as the best approach to conflict resolutions.

The future depends largely on the youths and only when they are made to realize that only them can make better or mar their future, would they see the light at the end of the tunnel. This is the vision of The Unarmed Youth (TUY).

Our Mission Statement:
Promoting peace, harmony and love among youths worldwide, thereby creating a better future for our future leaders and followers.

We have been organising LECTURES/SEMINARS for secondary school students, where we preach non-violence and peace.
