Young men and womenand their organisations are recognised as active agents of change realizing their civic and political rights through creating models to engage, adopt and take to scale.
We aim to support young women and men and their organizations to take collective action to realize their civic and political rights, through building young people’s awareness, skills and confidence in safe spaces, organising and convening groups so they can influence invited spaces, which will in turn, build their individual and collective power to claim more space for participation. We will also work with the local governments to be enablers for young people to be drivers of change in their local communities.
Change will come about when:
- Individuals can develop their skills and leadership in safe spaces. (Spaces where young people can meet, discuss and co-create, that stimulate individual growth,which are free from discrimination and control and where the agenda is youth-led.)
- Young women and men can interface and influence decision makers in invited spaces. (Formal spaces or mechanisms in the government system which young women and men and claim and use to influence.)
- Young women and men can organise and develop youth-led communities of practice in claimed spaces. (Spaces claimed by social movements and community where people connect to debate and resist.)
