YESS Girls Movement
August 26, 2017
- This project aims at giving young women (18-25 years) from WAGGGS Member Organizations in Africa and Asia Pacific an opportunity of a six-month international experience. This experience gives the young women a platform to be change agents and make a meaningful contribution to both their home and host countries.
- The YESS Girls Movement has deliberate connections to other WAGGGS Global Programmes including the World Thinking Day, Free Being Me, Nutrition International, Surf Smart, the New Leadership Offer, Financial Literacy, Arlen Barlow and the Leadership and Sustainability.
Likewise, Nepal Scouts plan to continue undertaking all the YESS Activities beyond the funded period.
Thematic area of project: Youth and Gender
