Story of YES Bangladesh

Youth Engagement for Sustainability (YES), Bangladesh is a Nation-wide Youth Led, Non-Profit and Non-Governmental Organization initiated in 25 July 2018, to create a Platform for the Child, Young People and especially women who are former member of a Child Led Organization named “National Children’s Task Force (NCTF), Bangladesh.”
On May 3-5 in 2018, Total 256 National Children’s Task Force former members from all over the country gathered in a three days’ workshop at Rangamati Water Front Resort in Gazipur arranged by Plan International Bangladesh. The young people came together to agree upon forming a platform for them and showed the interest to work for the betterment of children and youths of our country. We discussed and set up the platform’s aims to give the youth a common space where Children, young peoples and especially women can express their views, ideas, experiences, demands and advocate to bring a positive change in the society. This platform will Create a Scope for Capacity Building of Young peoples on various topic such as Gender, Climate Change/Action, Sustainable Goal, Skills and Knowledge Development so that we can play a role as the Change Agent. We also want to Bring the Adolescent and Young People in One Umbrella and create partnerships with other youth activists, network and organization who work with the same objectives. As well as, we also want to Do Advocacy to bring meaningful changes in the policies that are related with the interest of Children’s and youths such as the Child Marriage Restraint Act 2017 of Bangladesh.
Based on this concept, the idea of Youth Engagement for Sustainability (YES), Bangladesh emerged and through the technical support of Plan International Bangladesh, Youth Engagement for Sustainability (YES), Bangladesh has been grown as an independent youth led organization.
