- Youth Empowerment -
Guaranteeing a better future for communities requires developing youth now.
Developing young people and improving their chance of a better future is critical to changing the prospect for developing countries. Tag works to empower young people, with a special emphasis on girls, through improved education and mentoring. Our youth projects also incorporate arts, sport and skills training.
In Kenya Tag is introducing a pioneering rainwater harvesting system into schools. This provides clean drinking water, improved hygiene and sanitation, and enables school agriculture plots that provide a school feeding program and skills development for young people. In Azerbaijan, Tag delivered a youth resilience project in land mine affected areas incorporating soccer, outdoor adventure and first aid. Our Hoops for Kids project in Kenya leverages basketball to inspire and guide at-risk youth towards a commitment to education and success.
