Youth Forum Nepal (YFN) is a non-government, non-profit making social organization established in 2007 by a group of motivated professionals working in the field of social work. YFN aims of enterprising youths that seek to bring positive changes in the society through moral, social, psychological, and intellectual transformations of youths. Youths have potentials and ideas but they lack orientation and we are here to provide them with appropriate materials and tools. YFN works to strengthen bonds between young people and their community.

  Awareness Campaign  
     
 

We have a big belief. We believe that development towards every a single youth is development in a society. The multiplying effect of youth development is what society's transformation takes place. Youth awareness is what a youth need today. Being discriminated by every means, Nepalese youth from all facets of society can not come forward towards their own development. This has become even more ironic that youth lack of the knowledge and resources. Youth Forum Nepal thus vows to make its campaign one of the best programs that aware young people towards their every rights and national building process. To achieve the goals of awareness, Youth Forum Nepal works in every community with a mission of creating vibrant communities, innovative learning centers, and strong families that support youth to become responsible, productive, and inspired citizens. We hope our innovate process will help create positive and supportive community settings that contribute to a young person’s development.

Our programs towards overall youth awareness reach every community that needs to get knowledge and involve.

 
     
  The following points highlight key principles of participatory approaches in awareness campaign:  
     
 
  • offering space for inter-action of participants, avoid passive listening
  • respect for individual knowledge and skills
  • ensuring influence over project decisions, not simply involvement
  • participation is a learning process as much as an outcome
  • an approach and attitude rather than a specific set of technical skills.
 
     
  Inclusive Young People  
     
 

An important priority of Youth Forum Nepal is to give access to all young people, including young people with fewer opportunities, especially to those of marginalised communities to the YFN Programme.

Young people with fewer opportunities are young people that are at a disadvantage compared to their peers because they face one or more of the situations and obstacles mentioned in the non-exhaustive list below. In certain contexts, these situations or obstacles prevent young people from having effective access to formal and non-formal education, trans-national mobility and participation, active citizenship, empowerment and inclusion in society at large.

 
     
 
  • Social obstacles: young people facing discrimination because of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, etc.; young people with limited social skills or anti-social or risky sexual behaviours; young people in a precarious situation; (ex )offenders, (ex )drug or alcohol abusers; young and/or single parents; orphans; young people from broken families.

  • Economic obstacles: young people with a low standard of living, low income, dependence on social welfare system; in long-term unemployment or poverty; young people who are homeless, young people in debt or with financial problems.

  • Disability: young people with mental (intellectual, cognitive, learning), physical, sensory or other disabilities.

  • Educational difficulties: young people with learning difficulties; early school-leavers and school dropouts; lower qualified persons; young people with poor school performance.

  • Cultural differences: young immigrants or refugees or descendants from immigrant or refugee families; young people belonging to a national or ethnic minority; young people with linguistic adaptation and cultural inclusion problems.

  • Health problems: young people with chronic health problems, severe illnesses or psychiatric conditions; young people with mental health problems.

  • Geographical obstacles: young people from remote or rural areas; young people living on small villages or peripheral regions; young people from urban problem zones; young people from less serviced areas (limited public transport, poor facilities, abandoned villages).
