Youth as Agents of Social Change


This document is a collection of stories gathered from young people who have inspired, encouraged, and given aspiration to volunteering, activism, youth leadership, and a belief in the potential of youth for social change and development. By training, developing skills, and developing their own spaces and platforms, young people have been able to strengthen their agency and challenge discriminatory social norms, harmful practices such as Chhaupadi, child marriage, the dowry system, and different kinds of violence against women and girls.

The document further outlines that as a part of their advocacy, they are advocating for systemic reform by holding the government accountable for ensuring quality education and health services and that they have taken an active role in the local structure, platform, and decision-making process.
