Young Disaster Resilience Leaders (y-DRL)

Program to protect and empower young people in conflict and fragile settings in partnership with UNICEF and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works with local communities to develop a multi-faceted adolescent and youth protection and empowerment program attached to existing institutions (schools, public health clinics, etc.) in the affected areas. IDFR youth programs focus on key aspects of youth protection, empowerment, and development including the building of social assets, establishing leadership skills and training in vocational skills that will help these key at-risk groups transition into productive members of their community.
