Creating a better resourced, more equitable and sustainable future for youth-led change.
This challenge paper explores the opportunity to create positive systemic change in how youth civil society and activism are supported and resourced. It proposes ten actions that donors can take to more effectively resource young people around the world.
These recommendations include funding strategies and trusting young people with funding decisions, taking localization seriously and communicating transparently, being flexible in how donors fund and respecting independence, and supporting collaboration between the youth organizations donors support and increasing visibility. Finally, young people must be compensated for their support and advice.
