Corruption is a destructive and complex practice that is openly acknowledged in Nigeria, yet it remains ubiquitous in the functioning of society and economic life. Nigeria has sought to tackle corruption through â€˜traditionalâ€™ legal and governance-based measures.
The Strengthening Youth Participation in the fight against corruption Project (YPAC) is a DFID funded project that has the goal of engaging youths to become active advocates in the fight against corruption by mobilizing youth groups nationally through capacity building, social marketing/behavior change communication and civic engagement activities.
YAF has been awarded a grant by DFID Nigeria for a five year grant on the DFID NIGERIAâ€™S ANTI-CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA (ACORN) PROGRAMME. DFID Nigeriaâ€™s new multi-year Anti-Corruption in Nigeria (ACORN) programme aims to provide support over five years (2017-2022) to Nigerian authorities and civil society to tackle corruption by reducing public tolerance and ensuring those who are corrupt are caught and punished.
Youth Alive Foundation (YAF) is a non-profit Civil Society Organization established in 2002 with offices in Abuja, Lagos and Akwa Ibom states. YAFâ€™s mission is to play a significant role in facilitating a just, equitable and fair society where all youths can have access to social, economic and political opportunities.
The 27th day of April, 2017 will remain memorable in the lives of many concerned youth of Akwa Ibom State as the State House of Assembly overwhelmingly supported the Akwa Ibom Youth Development Fund (#AKYDF Bill) otherwise known as #10percent4youthAKS.The Bill which passed the second reading at the floor of the House was supported by almost all the members present at the plenary.
Youth Alive Foundation is therefore soliciting for applications from qualified researchers/consultants to carry out a research on government budget and expenditure on youth development/empowerment across ministries, departments and agencies in Akwa Ibom State.
This contest seeks to connect with youths of Akwa Ibom state on the need to personalize the campaign of the Akwa Ibom youth development fund (AKYDF) bill by telling personal stories of what AKYDF will do for you through producing creative videos.
The goal of the project for which proposals are being sought is the strengthening of youth participation in governance through digital gaming. The project is supported by the Strengthening Advocacy and Civic Engagement (SACE) Projectâ€™s Innovation and Spread the Word Fund (ISWF), funded by USAID.
