Young people face particular challenges and have distinct needs and that is why we are committed to working with young people to build their capabilities and to advocate for adequate resource allocation to enable them to fulfil their potential.
AYDA believes that today’s young will be tomorrow’s decision-makers and leaders, bridging the gaps between generations and communities. We aim to equip more young people to become leaders who can make a difference now and in the future.
