Youth of Osh

May 2, 2018

Youth of Osh is a leading youth organisation in Kyrgyzstan founded in Osh in 2008. Youth of Osh’s mission is: We prepare young leaders for the development of Kyrgyzstan. The organisation envisions a society where every young person actively participates in the development of the country and of a sustainable civil society, is part of his/her community’s decision-making and is valued as a driver of progress.

PeaceNexus is partnering with Youth of Osh to strengthen the organisation’s overall capacity to design, implement and report back on projects, in particular projects on its two new thematic objectives: de-radicalisation of youth and violence against women. Following the kick-off workshop that helped clarify priority needs, a consultant has been recruited to support Youth of Osh in developing a shared framework, including how to engage stakeholders, communicate with the media and mitigate organisational risks. The support will include skills-building, with a focus on design, monitoring, evaluation and learning (DMEL) capacities.

“Youth of Osh has an ambition to grow as a youth leading professional organization and constantly works on its organizational development. We are excited to receive organizational development support from the PeaceNexus foundation. I think they use a very unique approach in providing their support. I hope we will jump to the next stage of our development with PeaceNexus.”
