A few organizations I’d like to highlight that work with Youth on social issues (referred by a colleague at the United Nations):
Technology leader in Africa with a handful of products that serve people with limited access in hard-to-reach places. HQ Nairobi.
Data collection and visualization experts. Based in Nairobi.
Innovative approaches to communication to increase civic engagement & prevent violence in Kenyan communities. Also based in Nairobi.
Social messaging tool allowing people to respond to polls, report issues, support child rights and work as positive agents of change. India.
An example of the platform in use. The Zambia U-Report platform provides confidential, free of charge, individualized and interactive counseling services on HIV and STIs to adolescents and youth.
The ICT, Urban Governance and Youth report is the fourth report in the Global Youth-Led Development series.
