“Accelerating Youth Civic Participation in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT)”
With support from LEAP Africa’s Nigeria Youth, funded by the Ford Foundation and MacArthur Foundation, we are implementing the youth component of our Grassroots Advocacy Project (GRAP) to attract, educate and mobilise the youth in the six council areas in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for active civic participation. This includes empowering youth on how to participate in the 2023 general elections, understanding government budget processes, and tracking projects in their communities to drive participatory and accountable governance in the pursuit of the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and #TheNigeriaWeWant.
- To deploy technology and offline methods to engage youth across communities in the FCT for civic participation;
- To empower youth on participatory governance and how to demand accountability so as to follow up on their community’s needs; and
- To validate NYFF national visioning report on youth needs, document and produce a fact sheet and policy brief on accelerating youth civic participation in FCT communities.
The project implementation is to cover the six council areas in FCT.
