We work with young people to ensure local care meets their needs while providing resources like taps and latrines that are vital for staying healthy.
As young people can be particularly vulnerable to poverty-related illnesses like HIV, cholera and malaria, we help them improve their knowledge, attitudes and behaviour around health. This helps them stay healthy, so they are able to support themselves and their families.
We know that young people can find it difficult to overcome the psychological effects of conflict, poverty and other types of instability, and provide counselling alongside other training in fragile places. Working with local YMCAs and other youth organisations, young people see their wellbeing improve so they can become economically active.
