Last week, Somalia celebrated International Youth Day 2020 with the important theme of youth engagement for global action, an event which is held every year on August 12. Some stunning events were held in different parts of Somalia to commemorate International Youth Day 2020, a country where young people make up over 75% of the population.
Bareedo Platform Somalia honours the commemoration of Somali Youth Day, an annual event that signifies the beginning of the struggle for independence by a group of young Somalis in seventy-seven years ago on 15 May 1943 under the banner of the Somali Youth League (SYL). The SYL became an instrumental organization in Somalia’s push for independence and their sacrifices, struggle and patriotism united the Somali people, created the country’s flag and led to the recognition of Somalia by the international community.
Empowering youth and enabling them to play an active role within their country’s political process is Bareedo’s key priorities. Within efforts and activities to promote youth’s active participation in country’s political process, policy discussions and decision making which took place in different townships across Puntland, Bareedo Platform conducted a workshop for the key youth led organizations and groups in Qardho between December 20 – December 22, 2019.
