Youth Against Corruption

Youth for Participatory and Accountable Municipalities (YPAM)

This project was designed to enable the youth within the three selected localities (Majdal designed Anjar, Nimreen, and Chwaya) to effectively advocate for the implementation of good governance practices in municipalities.

Furthermore, needs-based assessments will be conducted in the areas to identify the top priority needs of the local community. The YCs will work towards advocating for a participatory form of Municipal budgeting in order to address the top priority needs of their communities.
