One of the dividends of democracy is involving the electorate in Governance. Sadly, people are only involved during elections which is only one of the numerous parts of governance. Young Leaders Network seeks to empower people to be more involved in the decision making processes in governance. We do this by encouraging the participation of youths and women in politics, decision making and advocacy for inclusive governance.
Young Leaders Network also builds the capacity of its beneficiaries with the knowledge of Human rights, Civic rights and responsibilities, social justice, accountability processes and the building of local coalitions. The success stories recorded during these engagements are aired to the general public through publications and radio programs. This helps in amplifying our voices and advocacies.
So far, YLN has engaged and trained over 500 youths and women in 9 Local Government Areas within Bauchi and Nassarawa states where our Governance project is running.
