Youth in DRC

But youth are not a homogenous group: the definition of youth is contextually and culturally specific and does not fit with formal, international policy definitions. In collaboration with our partners, we have adopted a contextual understanding of ‘youth’ in each location. Through our work, we have also learned that it is important to diversify the young people we work with, deliberately expanding beyond engagement with elite youth from English-speaking, educated, higher class or caste backgrounds.
In this series of videos, hear more about how we have engaged diverse young people in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Somali Regional State in Ethiopia.
