We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being ignored and overlooked.

Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities. Through our innovative programmes and policy work, targeting decision makers globally, we ensure that young people’s voices are heard not only in their local communities but all the way up to world leaders.
