Modelos efectivos

Strengthening the capacities of the members of youth groups.


  • Strengthening the capacities of the members of youth groups allows them to develop advocacy processes in favor of nutrition with better solvency.
  • Citizen participation on issues such as nutrition generates spaces for discussion between subnational authorities and other actors, who, through coordinated and collaborative work, join efforts aimed at results. These spaces also serve to track progress made.
  • Developing a communication campaign that makes visible the advocacy actions carried out by young people as part of civil society, not only reinforcing their participation, but also motivating them to continue strengthening their capacities and prepares them for possible future political participation.
