The overall goal of our project Y-LEAD - Creating Civic Spaces for Active Citizenship, is to increase social participation of youth and women in the public sphere, specifically Egyptian Local Council Elections, by raising awareness about their rights and duties and equipping them with the needed know-how and skills.
Therefore, some of our beneficiaries have been introduced to the required techniques and tools in the course of several, consecutive capacity-building workshops, in order to develop, plan and implement their own local initiatives. After a profound needs assessment on the local level, the beneficiaries transferred their ideas into concrete actions and had a great impact on their communities.
