Archive for March, 2009
On the 25 March 2009 we began the process of setting up the first pilot project in Uganda.
The aims of the workshop were to:
1. To inform key partners regarding the aims of the Youth Guidance Project. Notably, to pilot and test selected and manageable resources related to youth participation over a 10 month period, which will add value to ongoing initiatives (or those in the pipeline). These may be both initiatives already focusing on youth, or those where youth involvement has not yet been sought.
2. Increased awareness on youth participation issues and commitment built towards taking action in this area.
3. Collaborative discussion involving mulitlaterals, bilaterals, CSOs, youth representatives & government representatives on scoping the potential strategic opportunities for youth participation in policy, planning or programmes.
Some good initial discussions were had by all, and strong foundations set for the future. Please see the workshop minutes for outcomes and a list of participants.
Thank you to all who participated and we look forward to the Nepal workshop in April 2009.
