Study visit - Ethiopia
Posted on April 2023
Under the flag of Youth Alliance, we represented the
organization in Ethiopia as part of the study visit that took place from
24.04.2023 to 30.04.2023 in Addis Ababa.
The event resulted in familiarizing the participants with the local
system in terms of youth involvement and volunteering when it comes to
society's resilience in crisis management and crisis situations. Together with
our partners from Serbia - Ana and Vlade Divac and Italy - European Research
Institute, we came to the conclusion that there is a strong potential for the involvement
of young people in society, during period of crisis. Moreover, that Ethiopia has many active CSOs,
which actively work on resolving the issues that the community faces, from unemployment
to health and reproductive rights.
In a country with 120 million people where 70% are young people, the potential is immerse and the possibilities are endless. However, the problem of lack representation and participation of the marginalized groups in the decision - making processes persists.
Youth Alliance - Krusevo is the epicenter of progressive young people where in social challenges we see opportunities for change.
Youth Alliance - Krusevo is a unique mix of proactivity, inspiration and belief of young people who are transforming Macedonia, the Balkan region, Europe and the world.
Youth Alliance – Krusevo is non-governmental organization led by enthusiasts who are ultimate supporters of the young people. Organization where the young people are realizing and develop themselves.
