Young Voices members from Zimbabwe and across Africa chosen for conference
A total of eight Young Voices members from Kenya, Uganda, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe were selected through a very competitive process to participate in the Open Society Foundation’s African Youth with Disabilities Conference. This high profile youth event is one of the biggest run by a civil society group in Africa, and the foundation covers the entire cost of participation. Held in Nairobi during the last week of May, the five-day conference focused on implementing UN human rights instruments, and the use of traditional and new media for campaigning. The members also held informal meetings with each other to develop common advocacy positions across borders and to film and write daily diaries of their experiences.
