Promoting Youth Leadership and Participation to foster Peace and Social Cohesion in Guinea-Bissau (2021 – 2022)

Building on the experience maturated on women promotion in decision making, Interpeace launched the initiative “No Ianda Djuntu: Drawing the Pathway Together” aimed to empower youth to play a central role in advancing democratic participation and peacebuilding in Guinea-Bissau. By encouraging reflection on the involvement of young people in decision-making processes, strengthening their capacity to influence public decision-making bodies, and increasing their self-confidence to promote new models of leadership, the project contributed to catalyze significant  change at the individual level. Implemented in all regions of the country, the project allowed to facilitate the effective inclusion of young men and women at the community and local institutions level promoting their meaningful participation.
