[FULLY FUNDED] Call for Application: Youth Empowerment- Youth Leadership and Data

YUWA together with Jiwanta Nepal is going to organise three days workshop for 20 selected youths on Youth Empowerment- Youth Leadership and Data at Avocado & Orchid Hotel, Chaukitol, Hetauda.

As part of the Youth Empowerment- Youth Leadership and Data, YUWA is looking for innovative and energetic youth to be evidence based leaders of Nepal by empowering on concepts of youth, their rights, leadership and skills, and the use of open data as evidence for youth-led and data driven development. The Youth Empowerment- Youth Leadership and Data Project is designed around the premise that if a network of young data leaders is formed, then these leaders can productively support the government at the local levels to make evidence-based decisions for the welfare of the community through the use of (open) data. 

Project Description 

Youth Empowerment- Youth Leadership and Data, with an interactive approach, will focus on empowering youth at local level about youth leadership and skills, while centering on the role and importance of open data in applying the leadership skills in their community. The project aims to address evidence based decision-making challenges of youth at the local level, as it is crucial to fill in the gap between youth and their potential to better understand causality of local issues, find appropriate solutions for them and to better allocate pertinent resources to help monitor and evaluate one's decisions. With Nepal moving into the federal structure, informed young leaders at local level who can use open data to develop and implement community solutions as well as advocate with and support local governments are key for success.

Each participant need to fill in the application form, and in the application form will be asked to highlight a problem in their community that they as leaders wish to find a solution for.
