We strongly support the all UN Conventions that uphold and respect human dignity, most especially the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights Principles and all the UN Goals".
As YATIA is a non-discriminative peace-building organization, no member of YATIA must discriminate, on the basis of race, color, tribe or religion.
No member of YATIA is allowed to be a part of any illegal activities, such as Drugs Trafficking, Human Trafficking or any cult or act that is not peaceful to human nature.
All members of YATIA must respect each other views and must be able to resolve conflicts whenever, wherever and in any situation in the name of peace.
Anyone who is a member of YATIA must be non-violent, intelligent and should never allow their emotions to overcome their reasoning, as YATIANS we are peacemakers and not ANNIHILATORS OF PEACE.
No member of YATIA should participate in any political discussion that will cause bias to the organizations’ aim, because if our bias leads us to make unfair judgments based on tribe or religion, this is discrimination.
As a member of YATIA, it is important to keep our minds and hearts open, and should always show respect for other people’s feelings and positions.
All members of YATIA should always depersonalize each other’s problem, by not blaming or accusing each other but discuss the problem without emotions, because whenever we are involved in a problem, it is very easy to respond to anger or sadness, or emotional heat. This may result in convulsive behaviors which may cause more predicaments in the future.
All members of YATIA must build trust and confidence in each other which is a good example of peacebuilding through eradicating tribalism that will lead them to submissiveness and not aggressiveness.
No member of YATIA may be bought by any political activist to be used for campaign purposes as YATIA is a non-political group.
YATIA is a nondiscriminatory, nonprofitable peacebuilding and human rights organization founded against what is believed to be one of the major problems facing sub-Saharan Africa (Tribalism, ethnic discrimination, racism, xenophobia) and the world at large. With that, YATIA was founded to address issues pertaining to Tribalism and any other form of injustices and discriminations against humanity on the continent of Africa.
YATIA envisages an African Continent in which there will be a total eradication of Tribalism (Ethnicity), discrimination and any other form of injustice practices against humanity; aimed at building a pacific and cohesive African continent that will adopt a peaceful and nonviolent society.
