International Womens Day: an equal world is a better and enabled world, and each of us has the responsibility and capability to create such an equal world.
Empower Youth for Work (EYW) started on 1 July 2016 and is a five-year programme, funded by the IKEA Foundation. The programme focuses on enabling young people (especially young women) in rural climate-affected areas of Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Ethiopia to seek and obtain decent work. Working with a wide range of stakeholders (including young people, government and the private sector), the programme applies a holistic approach to tackle issues of gender-based discrimination, sexual reproductive health, and quality education—all of which impact young people in making choices about employment. The programme activities promote climate-friendly practices and support young people and their communities in adapting to the effects of climate change. Through the use of human-centred design techniques, we involve stakeholders in the development and implementation of activities.
