Wataneya celebrated the completion of "Mobader" leadership program and the graduation of 21 youths and launching six initiatives that provide practical solutions to issues related to the alternative care system and children and youth without parental care.
The program is a journey of learning for youth how to develop a campaign strategy, advocate for it and encourage their peers to participate, launch the campaign, and implement it on the ground.
The program is in collaboration with Drosos Foundation, Sawiris Foundation, and AlexBank and with implementing partners Leadership Hub.
The initiatives discussed mental health and proper food, improving the quality of education, and self-reliance skills and the impact reached 22 care homes and 168 children and youth, and showed tangible results and significant changes at the level of care homes, from amending regulations, setting new regulations and adhering to protocols, and at the level of young people themselves, from the development of personality, active participation and acceptance of identity.
Mobader is one of the after-care programs offered by Wataniya for youth over 18 years old, with the aim of empowering, developing, and preparing graduates of care homes for the purpose of developing the lives of young people and creating community leaders who take responsibility for issues and challenges that people know best about and are able to confront and create innovative solutions to deal with and empower their peers.
