Collectivisation of Youth
Hummingbird and its Partners believe that if youth are provided with the opportunity to raise their consciousness of their fundamental human rights, they can become agents of change in their community. This potential impact multiplies when youth take action together. It is further believed that their participation is imperative for promoting child-friendly environments and behaviours, and for building community-owned programmes.
Hummingbird’s Partners work with action groups of youth, or “Collectives”, through which youth participate in a structured learning process that focuses on gender issues, how trafficking manifests in their communities, strategies for accessing rights, and tools for negotiating with those in power.
