We believe that change is possible and we will answer the call for action. Our greatest resource in our struggle is young people themselves!
Young people are a diverse group, and at ActionAid we refer to “the many faces of youth”. Our definition of youth focuses first on the socio-political identity of young people who are seeking the rights and independence that adulthood should bring. It is by its very nature therefore, contested, and hence age definitions vary across the world. ActionAid uses 15-30 as a guide only. We will working with the most vulnerable young people and prioritise young women across all interventions.
