We need to give the youth a chance to be included in the development of Africa. Everybody talks about how important it is to involve the youth, but few do anything about it.
In our development programs in Malawi we include the youth in the general development and we have a spesific component that focus on young women. By having an internship program for young women (last for one year) we want to contribute to more women in leadership positions. We are also establishing Young Women Can Do It! clubs around the country to build self confidence, leadership skills etc for young women and men. These youth can then be included in the local decision structutres like District counsil, Area & Village Development commitees. Deliberate efforts work, but we need to move from talk to action!
