MIFTAH's Programmes & Projects
Participation Enhancement Program
This Program aims at enhancing the leadership roles of youth and women and their ability to shoulder responsibility towards social and political change at both the local and national levels, based on a democratic approach and the principles of good governance. The program aims to advance the interests and the capacities of youth and women in political and social influence, towards becoming capable of assuming decision-making positions and participating in formulating public policies.
Furthermore, the program is aimed at expanding the scope of promoting the principles of good governance through embracing youth and women’s networks that are empowered with monitoring and accountability mechanisms, and capable of voicing their rights and sharing their experiences at the regional and international levels.
