YALF PROJECT STAKE HOLDERS
Young Aspiring Youths
Young aspirants interested in running for elections in the 2019 general election across various party platforms in Nigeria. Using the 2015 general election data, at least 2,000 youth candidates ran for different political offices in Nigeria, and with the assumption that at least the same or more numbers of youth candidates shall emerge for the 2019 general election.
Political parties in Nigeria.
Young Aspirants reported that there are salient barriers that shrink space and make it difficult for youths to contest, win primaries and become party flag bearers. We try to create awareness so the political parties resolve these difficulties and barriers through “Advocacy for Increasing Space for Youth Candidates in Political Parties".
Marginalized youth (young women and persons with disability)
We provide young people with tailored capacity building training and support, that increases their skills set and understanding of the political system. Thus enhancing their chances of winning elections at various levels and lead to a more inclusive political environment.
