Challenge

Young people, particularly young women and girls, from marginalized and poor communities have least access to information or avenues for participation and self development. They lack opportunities to build awareness about their health and well being, entitlements or negotiate control over decisions about their lives. These factors put them at a dangerous disadvantage throughout their childhood and youth and leaves them unprepared to deal with the challenges of adulthood.

Solution

Each year, The YP Foundation enables 150 peer leaders to lead training programmes directly working with 3000 young people in low resource communities. They take up critical issues of life skills, violence prevention, civic participation, sexual and reproductive health, enabling participants take healthy decisions and have better quality of life. These 3000 aware youth lead dialogue and action with families and communities, and influence government to improve young people's health and well being.

Long-Term Impact

Our programmes have been shown to increase young people's mobility, confidence and negotiation skills to reduce violence and improves their health awareness and quality of life. They create critical thinking and socially aware young change leaders who are able to access their own rights and advocate for the rights of others. They also foster an environment where young people are meaningfully included in creating and implementing development agendas and not just be voiceless beneficiaries.
