Youth Voices

Voice of the Children encourages all youth to make their voices and opinions heard.

Youth Voices is a safe space for youths to engage constructively and to discuss issues. We encourage everyone, particularly youth to learn, share and discuss whatever issue you may find interesting – Education, Environment or Violence and Conflict and inform yourself about HIV/AIDS, Health or Human Rights for example.

If you are aged between 18-25 and would like to contribute something, drop us a note!
