Skilled and empowered young people help stimulate and inspire new ideas that act as a beacon of hope for their communities which are weakened and disempowered due to crippling poverty among other developmental challenges.
Ending period poverty by providing access to safe menstrual products. Tackling gender-based violence encountered by young women and their vulnerability to HIV and AIDs.
