As youth we do require to satisfy our basic needs namely food, shelter and clothing. But as youth we also need to feed our mind with knowledge on what is happening around us regarding policy issues that affect us.

The United Nations published ‘The World Programme of Action for Youth’ that provides a policy framework and practical guidelines for national action and international support to improve the situation of young people.

The Programme of Action focuses in particular on measures to strengthen national capacities in the field of youth and to increase the quality and quantity of opportunities available to young people for full, effective and constructive participation in society.Click on this link for more information.
