CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

“Often, social progress doesn’t come from governments looking down, directing change. It comes from communities, families, and individuals looking up, driving society forward themselves,fueled by nothing more than an idea or instinct to do good. It comes from civic engagement.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           — Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan

Civic engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political processes.

Communities with the greatest and most diverse citizen participation are often resilient and strong.To build this kind of community, the youths must have a part to play.

This programme seeks to promote youth participation in building  their communities Our key value is that youths who have benefited from our programmes Pass It On on to others.

We help youths sprout their ideas into projects geared at empowering their communities. We also organize youth forums to keep youths informed on the MDGs, keep them abreast on the development of the MDGs and  also promote youth participation in accomplishing the MDGs
