This strategic alliance revolves around the “Continuity Planning for Youth-led Organizations” program, an initiative spearheaded by Youth4DRR. The program’s objective is to provide comprehensive support in developing and implementing effective continuity plans for organizations led by youth. These plans are essential for ensuring that such organizations can swiftly adapt and recover in the face of various challenges and disruptions.
Under the terms of the MoU, Youth4DRR will extend its expertise to WHO-IB, offering essential tools, guidelines, and mentorship. This collaboration will empower the WHO-IB with the necessary resources to develop robust continuity plans, thereby enhancing the operational resilience of youth-led initiatives under its umbrella.
The signing of this MoU with WHO-IB is a significant milestone in our mission to build a resilient future for youth-led organizations. We believe that this collaboration will be pivotal in equipping young leaders with the skills and tools they need to navigate and thrive amidst the complexities of the modern world.
This partnership is expected to have a far-reaching impact, fostering a culture of preparedness and resilience among youth-led organizations. It underscores the commitment of both Youth4DRR and WHO-IB to invest in the potential of young leaders, ensuring that they are well-equipped to handle and overcome adversities.
As this collaboration unfolds, Youth4DRR plans to host a series of workshops and training sessions, contributing to a more robust and sustainable framework for youth-led organizations globally.
