Calling for Local Youth-led Organizations, Networks, and Coalitions in Africa, Asia, Latin America/Caribbean, or the Middle East!

We (Copper Rose Zambia, IYAFP, and other youth-led organisations, with the support of FP2030) are taking the movement for equitable partnerships with young people to the next level! Together, we will be supporting and pushing the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) actors (especially, governments, iNGOs, and donors) to make concrete progress in the near term in the following areas:

  1. Implementation of equitable agreements and partnerships between youth, youth-led organizations, and other institutions, by adjusting subcontracts, memoranda of understanding, terms of reference, and ensuring fair compensation for work;
  2. Making resources more easily available by co-designing new funding mechanisms with young people and revising procurement policies and existing mechanisms;
  3. Facilitating organizational development, not just technical strengthening to strengthen youth-led organizations, networks, and movements based on their identified goals and needs and improve non-youth organizations and institutionsā€™ ability to establish and sustain partnerships with young people.

Are you a local youth-led organization, network, or coalition based in Africa, Asia, Latin America/Caribbean, or the Middle East?
