Youth Leadership Development Foundation

General Information
Fields of Interest (Focus Areas): 
Youth Leadership Development Foundation (YLDF) is a non-governmental non-profit organization, located in Sana’a capital city of Yemen. YLDF was founded to support youth in voicing their opinions and needs, and participating in Yemen’s development, especially underprivileged and female youth. Youth represents a wide base in the demographic pyramid of Yemen, yet they play a small role in decision making processes and have a minor contribution to the economy. Under the umbrella of YLDF, both Girls World Communication Center (GWCC) and Youth Economic Development Center (YEDC) operate to serve Yemeni youth in Sana’a and other governorates. GWCC, predecessor of YLDF, was established in 1998 as the first language Center in Yemen catering exclusively to girls. In 2001, it was registered officially with the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Education. The center is the first institute in Yemen specialized in girls' capacity building. Currently it also offers different programs that enhance male and female youth participation in community development as well as supports youth NGOs and initiatives to play active development roles. In 2005, the Center was incorporated into the Youth Leadership Development Foundation. YEDC, previously called Youth Economic Development Initiative funded by MEPI, as launched in 2005 as a training program. YLDF decided to invest in the successes of the program and expand its activities through establishing Youth Economic Development Center in 2006 with support from MEPI and Canadian Development Program. The center mainly serves Yemeni young males and females to become economically secure and socially established and thus able to participate in all domains of economic life in which merit and attitude transcend social status and gender. Our vision is a Yemen in which skilled, well qualified and active young women and men play leadership roles in all domains of society and enable Yemenis to contribute to a better world.
