In relation to pyd…. This is an excellent website. Not only is it attractive and informative, but it really allows viewers to get to know and understand the organization and its purpose. Though this site is geared towards getting recognition, donors, and sponsorship this could be very useful for Youth Developers as well. Not only does this website raise awareness of poverty stricken youth, but it allows for Youth Developers to be more aware, diverse, and knowledgeable of the conditions of underprivileged youth. In turn, these things only make better Youth Developers because they are able to know and understand the backgrounds and conditions of many different youth, not just Youth in certain places. I would definitely recommend this website to anyone trying to learn more about underprivileged youth in other countries. Not only were there statistics and facts to back up the information, but it was enjoyable to read.
