Through the training program of this project, 25 young persons will be actively informed about issues such as health, gender equality and access to education, availability of social services, their rights and entitlements to government services over the course of a training of 5 days. An important multiplier effect of this project is that each of the trained youngster will pass on this information to 25 other young people, ultimately reaching out to 625 people and their families in helping communities become more aware of their rights and entitlements. In this way, young people will be able to provide more informed guidance to their families and communities.
