Young people are most affected by the most persistent problems in the world, yet are frequently overlooked as part of the solution. Our mission is to place young people at the forefront of change and development. Our strength comes from handing over the delivery and management of all of our programmes to young people and young professionals. From the planning to the evaluating, young people demonstrate the power of development led by young people. And at every level in our structure young people are represented; from the boardroom right through to our programmes in Africa and South Asia. We have been working to create change since 1985 and over the past 30 years, our programmes have reached over 7 million young people directly and indirectly.
