Youth Bridge Foundation
In carrying out its mission Youth Bridge Foundation values:
Informed by our Value of ‘Equity’, the Foundation mainstreams gender and disability perspectives in its programs and projects to ensure that both girls’/ boys’ needs and youths with disability needs are taken into consideration.
We recognize that, especially youth with disabilities have peculiar concerns with different needs, different levels of access, opportunities and constraints that require conscious attention in addressing.
The Foundation appreciates this as a fundamental step for inclusion and responsiveness to Youth Development issues. For the purposes of integration and exhibiting our commitment to ‘Equity’, we strengthened our Access To Justice & Disability Program by establishing a Disability Desk.
The Desk has young people with disability as officers with an oversight by a Team of PWD expert. For us inclusion entails recognizing the barriers and constraints to inclusion and finding ways of improving it by giving equal opportunities to all. We thus approach these social problems caused by a lack of access to justice through the culturally resonant method of storytelling to raise awareness, develop capacities on existing laws and where and how to access them, and advocate for enforcement by those responsible for upholding such rights.
