I was pleased to be part in one of the most interesting projects, an International Youth Training Course, organised by IDA TEAM. The name of the project was “Active Youth Participation” and took place in Bansko, Bulgaria from 13th -21st September 2013.
It was an international youth training course that gave the opportunity to 35 young people (youth workers, youth leaders, facilitators, activists, trainers) to develop their understanding of necessary conditions for youth participation and to increase their understanding of youth participation in its different dimensions: decision making, youth policy lobbying, NGYO’s programmes & activities.
The participants experienced typical challenges in youth participation projects and coaching groups of young people.
The project was organized by International Development Alliance, Bulgaria in partnership with 8 European youth organizations from the following countries: Romania, Estonia, Czech Republic, Latvia, Hungary, Greece, United Kingdom, Spain.
The aim of the training course was to improve the quality of youth participation projects in European countries by developing young people and youth workers competences in the field of project management and youth participation trough non-formal education training. The training course “Active Youth Participation” was realized with the financial support of the European Commission, "Youth in Action" Programme, Action 4.6. We spent 8 lovely days in Bansko, at Green Wood Hotel, with people from different countries and cultures, exchanging our experiences and working together in groups. We shared our good practices, opinions, educational tools, materials related to youth participation projects. We had the opportunity to design a youth participation project to implement as a follow-up of the training and worked with concrete tools and criteria to assess quality in participative projects.

In Pakistan there is utmost need of education emergency in our region South Asia especially girls’ education. There is gap between girls and boys educational achievement in Pakistan. In Pakistan, literacy ratio of women education, 40%, is very low as compare to other South Asian countries. I think focused more and more on girls’ education then we can produce literate women in future. Ultimate benefit of the girls’ education is for society and country which is facing lot of challenges due to illiteracy. Education will be the powerful tool for women development.
My day job is academic coordinator for the educational opportunity fund program where I work with under-represented students to build their academic skills from admission to graduation. I have seen first hand the impact that a college education can have on the life of a student and I am committed to advocating for education rights for all people.
Hola, he hecho de voluntaria en una comunidad que se conoce como zona de alto riesgo en la cual formamos a los chicos en valores, la tarea se vuelve compleja porque algunos padres no apoyan sin embargo han salido buenos resultados entre ellas unas chicas con las cuales compartimos hace diez años aproximadamente terminaron sus estudios de secundaria y ahora estudian en la universidad eso es un enorme logro teniendo como referente que en esta zona muchos de los chicos no terminan la primaria por trabajar y llevar sustento a sus casas. Sin embargo creo que ayudandoles en su educacion y siendo apoyo para ellos se puede hacer impacto en sus vidas. Priscila Mena
