TRAINING YOUTH FOR

SOCIAL

CHANGE


THE GLOBAL PLATFORM NEPAL Welcome to Global Platform Nepal – ActionAid’s youth training centre. The Global Platform Nepal sets the frames for creative youth activities, global activism, innovative voluntarism, solidarity and citizenship. Through exciting trainings we encourage and motivate young people to take action in their communities and promote social change. ‘Think global – Act local’ - we believe that social change is possible when youth around the world come together and create local activities with global visions. As part of a worldwide network of Global Platforms, we promote youth empowerment for social change through participatory, experience based and fun trainings - all carefully developed on the basis of comprehensive global experiences. We provide youth with the knowledge, attitude and skills to be active global citizens with the ability to reduce social and economic inequality in the world!
