THANKS FOR MAKING CHANGE POSSIBLE
EDUCATION: We use advocacy as a tool to educate young people about issues affecting their wellbeing and future especially women and girls. We our awareness raising on FGM, rape, early marriage, teenage pregnancy, domestic violence, corporal punishment and other injustice against humanity. We’re raising funds to support school going pupils with learning materials, family members with business grant and renovate depilated school structure.
YOUTH EMPOWERMENT: Youth empowerment is of good importance to both nations and the empowered. The organisation is working on its future plans that will provide skill training for young people such as graphic design, basic computer skills, filmmaking, video making, and editing. Below are a few reasons why youth empowerment is important and why this has to be one of our focuses. 1. Poverty Eradication: Youth empowerment can curb the rate of poverty to a large level. One of the keys to empowering the youth is with skill development. When a youth is equipped with essential skills, he or she can utilize them to feed, assist others, and even invest for future use, aiding the nation economically. This will in-turn contribute to the increase in employability and add to the GDP of the nation. 2. Improved Standard of Education: Empowerment can help youth to understand the importance of education that leads to social improvement of the country. The empowered youths can donate educational facilities to primary, secondary and even to tertiary institutions. Empowering the youths academically accelerates the spirit of patriotism in the education sector. The empowered youths know the importance of education. This is why many individuals issue scholarships to the students because they understand the value of education due to the empowerment, which was given to them academically. Education exposes people to know what they did not know before. 3. Good Governance: When the youths are empowered, they empower the masses, thereby paving path for a better future. To build a better tomorrow, we need to nurture the youths of today. 4. Crime reduction and National Security: Empowerment ensures that youth has the necessary skill to sustain a livelihood, preventing him to adopt the path of crime. 5. Employment Creation: This is another importance of youth empowerment. A youth empowered society will not seriously suffer from the problem of unemployment that many nations are battling with in the current time. A skillful youth is a job creator. Lastly, the 21st century is not in the distant future- it is today. Youth empowerment is of good importance to both nations and the empowered. Outside the government creating Youth empowering programs, the youths should see it as a duty to personally develop them, because at the end of the day the best thing you can bring to any environment is YOU.
GENDER EQUALITY: Over the years, the world has gotten closer to achieving gender equality. There is better representation of women in politics, more economic opportunities, and better healthcare in many places of the world. However, the World Economic Forum estimates it will take another century before true gender equality becomes a reality. As an organization we are working to fill in what drives the gap between genders by advocating for •Men to share household chores and childcare equally •Educate women to watch for signs of domestic violence and to report the issue •Helping women gain power through empowerment, promote their dreams and aspirations of becoming leaders in society •Educate men to be fair in their homes with their women •Support women by encouraging a safer environment for them to report discrimination and sexual harassment •Provide comprehensive training on anti bias, rape, FGM, SGBV, domestic violence and violence against children etc. •Provide women with small business grant
VIOLENCE RESOLUTION: As an organization, we are fully aware of the magnitude of violence in our different communities across the country and among young people. Violence and conflict is not part of our organisation's mission. We are against violence and we will work for peace to prevail in our communities and on Earth through our community outreach advocacy, hosting of national, international and continental peace webinars and equip young people with the necessary skills that will enable them resolve violence happening around them.
PARTNERSHIP: We're also aware of the fact that the Global Goals can only be met if we work together. International investments and support is needed to ensure innovative technological development, fair trade and market access, especially for developing countries. To build a better world, our organisation is open to partner with other organisation that promote education and are against all forms of injustice against young people.
