International Youth Day: “Young women’s confidence”

Saturday, August 12, 2017 - 08:30 to 19:00

Every year, August 12 marks International Youth Day. Last year, the Oxfam Community on Youth Active Citizenship gathered in Montreal to highlight youth and inequality.

By publishing a policy brief, and by facilitating a Youth Summit on Inequality where young people developed a youth manifesto to end inequality. Also, this year we want to work towards a joint moment with as many Oxfam countries, regions and affiliates working on youth empowerment. The countries (both ‘northern’ and ‘southern’) that like to join can have national activities that come together at a joined global platform. We found that many people can identify a concrete turning point that changed them to become who they are today. This turning point, or trigger, is often created by inspiring people around them: people they can relate to and identify with, people that have a similar background and who have reached their own goals or dreams. Working with these role models can show young people what is possible, and what peers were (and still are) able to do.

Objective: to inspire young women to pursue their dreams by seeing their peers, best friends as young lady has reached their ambitions, then they trigger to change their personal life and professional life. “Young Women’s Confidence “is the thematic for Cambodia international Youth day.
