ALL young people reach their full potential
Today’s youth comprise 20% of the world’s population but definitely 100% of the future.
Every day young people across the globe face the adverse effects of climate change, the uncertainties of new health emergencies, and the unseen and incomprehensible threats of social media. This is on top of still unresolved issues in youth poverty, malnutrition, exploitation, and inequitable access to quality education. These compounding issues threaten the future of our youth.
If the welfare of our young people is threatened,
the future of the planet is uncertain.
By 2040, Young People in the Philippines are healthier, have better access to opportunities (education, employment, and entrepreneurship), are highly-engaged citizens, and are better protected from violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect.
OUR HYPOTHESIS OF CHANGE
When young people participate and are civically engaged, they positively develop, build their confidence, negotiate decisions, and influence critical issues that contribute to the fulfillment of their own rights. By participating individually or collectively, they are contributing to the improvement of their school, their community, the country, and the planet.
