TYP believes that having a region where young people are empowered can best be achieved by working with others. By pooling resources and expertise, our collective action is greater and more impactful than what we can deliver on our own. In addition to funding partners, we work with a range of actors from local project partners and advocacy allies to research and technical institutions, and suppliers.
Project partners, at local or national level, bring knowledge and understanding of youth empowerment as they play out in their own community and country context. They may be grassroots organizations, cooperatives, small businesses or government officials, who best understand the issues at stake. TYP aims to support and enhance their skills and capacity so that communities can unleash their full potential.
Advocacy allies allow us to give more prominence to the issues and voice of the youth. To this end, we partner with humanitarian and development NGOs, prominent advocates, national and regional alliances, and celebrities, to amplify the voice of those affected and the changes needed.
Research and technical institutions bring world-class academic knowledge, and technical advances to the fight against poverty. These partnerships are critical to capture and apply new ideas, knowledge and practice to real-world settings.
Suppliers deliver essential goods and services needed to advance our youth empowerment and development programs. We work with a range of suppliers, thriving to support local economics and keep operational costs low.
TYP is committed to partnerships that are empowering, respectful, and focused on mutual learning and growth. We believe that poverty and social injustice can best be addressed through strategic and impactful partnerships with a range of actors from government, civil society, private sector and beyond.
Our work would not be possible without the support of those who partner with us to fund our work – individuals, corporations, trusts, foundations, governments, institutions and community groups.
