Zimbabwe Civil Society Encourages Participation Ahead of Elections

The Institute for Young Women’s Development (IYMD) and Organizing 4 Zimbabwe (O4Z) have teamed up to encourage youth and women to participate in politics ahead of the country’s 2018 elections. IYMD, O4Z, and others have developed a tool, the Zimbabwe National Youth Manifesto, to inform the government and stakeholders about young people’s policy priorities. O4Z, which originally created the tool, hopes its recommendations will inform the country’s National Youth Policy by addressing gender equality, employment, health, political participation, and educational development.
