Amref Health Africa and the Advocacy Accelerator are implementing the Youth Advocacy Project, a newly funded initiative working with youth, partners and communities to strengthen the voice, skills, and participation of youth across Kenya to advocate for youth-identified policy and resource priorities in the areas of gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
Why The Youth Advocacy Project
Young people under the age of 35 make up 70% of the Kenyan population, yet often face huge barriers to engaging with decision-makers and making the changes they seek, especially in the areas of gender equality and SRHR. The Youth Advocacy project works with youth across Kenya to overcome and remove these barriers in order to take advantage of the huge opportunities that currently exist for youth to shift Kenya’s political landscape.
How We Achieve This Aim
The project focuses on Africa.
