Young women and men are particularly affected by development challenges at all levels, frequently faced with disproportionately high levels of unemployment, insufficient access to education and professional training, intolerance and exclusion, among others.
Youth Empowerment gives young people the opportunity to develop the ability they need to become effective members who can influence their communities and earn a living, by providing them with the necessary skills training such as (Life skills, Communication skills, Team work, Leadership, Marketing, Social media, Career building)
Lebanon has been suffering lately due to harsh political conditions. The Lebanese public and especially the youth are feeling more and more powerless and unable to influence their surroundings.
Their only choice is to accept the current political situation and to live life outside the problems of their community. The Lebanese public is too depressed with the tense political situation plaguing their country to the extent that they are giving up hope on democratic reform.
INNODEV believes that there is a possibility to change this situation by empowering the youth and make them feel that they can make a difference in their society, specifically if they are given training on advocacy and high media profile activism. This will not benefit the youth alone, but it can also inspire the Lebanese public and give them hope to realize that change is possible.
