Youth Parliament in Asyut
Innovative initiatives by young people at a UNICEF-supported youth centre
Children in white coats holding up banners with awareness messages, teenagers making videos to support home isolation patients, and a young girl among the few educated in her village educates mothers.
These were among some innovative initiatives of a group of young people who met at the Al-Salam Youth Center in Manflout, Asyut governorate, as part of the Youth Parliament initiative.
Under the slogan "Our Role", the Ministry of Youth and Sports, in partnership with UNICEF and the support of the Arab Council for Childhood and Development, launched the 'Youth Parliaments' program to train young people between 13-19 years on planning and implementing community initiatives.
Within the framework of this program, young people learn how to identify problems, think of solutions and plan their implementation. In youth centers, trainers support young people through periodic meetings to communicate and discuss the challenges they face in implementing initiatives, while tracking and monitoring their progress.
So what's the story of each? That's to explore in this photo essay.
