In a bid to have meaningful youth participation, UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund , midwifed the birth AfriYAN (African Youth and Adolescent Network on population and development ) that has grown into a strong movement across the East,Central and Southern Africa. AfriYAN Uganda was initially operating as a loose network of youth led and youth serving organizations that seek to eliminate Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) related challenges among young people today to ensure that they live a quality life and maximize their full potential.
RAHU is currently the UNFPA implementing partner tasked to coordinate the running of AfriYAN Uganda Chapter and all its activities. The registration process of the Uganda chapter was completed in December 2016 and it is now a fully functional network of youth led and youth serving organizations across the country that work in the different Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights fields.
To further strengthen the network internally, a two day retreat for the 21 founding member organizations will be held. The main purpose of the two day retreat is to generate a strategic plan that will define scope of AfriYAN activities for the next three years. This will be essential in determining the direction and vision of the network which is still in it’s infancy. The outcomes of the retreat will be compiled and shared with the network.
