CYD’s identity is based on humanitarian values emanating from a deep respect for human dignity and a conviction of the value of equitable partnership, CYD works to empower the poor to take charge of their own lives and communities. CYD intervenes through the sectors of education, health, environment, livelihoods, governance and ICT for development.
Whereas education helps people develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge needed to make informed decisions for the development of themselves and their communities, livelihoods creates access to sustainable income sources and provides a means by which the poor can act upon these decisions, environment and health promotes life and ICT is leveraged for development.
It is our firm conviction that, when combined, education, livelihoods, health, governance, livelihoods and ICT for Development can enable our target group to hold duty bearers accountable for the realization of their rights to a greater extent than is possible through isolated interventions alone.
