Young Leaders For Change Foundation
What we do
Young Leaders for Change Foundation works to ensure that all children, youth and women are well informed and meaningfully participate in decision-making that affects their lives by advocating, generating knowledge, sharing information, building partnerships and training young activists at local, national and international levels.
Young Leaders for Change Foundation works to promote the development needs and aspirations of young people and women in Ghana and across the African continent but with a primary focus on Rights of the Child (RoC) and Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (ASRHR). The Organisation’s approach to children women and youth development is a rights-based one with full and meaningful participation of young people as a pivot for our engagement at all levels of programme/project conceptualization, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Young people are indeed at the heart of Young Leaders for Change Foundation’s campaigns in the area of RoC and Sexual and Reproductive Health including HIV and AIDS, Maternal and Child Health – all anchored on relevant national policy targets and successive Medium Term Development Strategies as well as global development targets set by the UN and other relevant international bodies.
