Youth Ambassadors for Change is a program aiming to enhance active youth
participation in civil society among indigenous population of Bangladesh, and
empower them to become leading agents for change in their communities.
Creating new platforms and opportunities for dialogue will enable young people from
different indigenous groups and areas to exchange experiences. These platforms
will also cater a strengthened dialogue with local leaders and government
representatives. Through capacity building, the youths will be strengthened in
awareness about rights, leadership, advocacy and networking skills. They will also
have opportunities to implement their own social action plans based on problems
they have identified.
This project will help to unite the youths in the target communities and empower
them to address the discrimination they currently face, as well as strengthen their
relationship to government and civil society.
