Implementing partners will play a key role to create opportunities for ethnic minority youth to actively participate in relevant matters that have impacts on their lives. The project also has aim at ensuring that target social organizations and implementing partners in Yen Bai province have the capacity to support the capacity for start-up and the socio-economic development of vulnerable minority youth, their engagement and active participation in decision making and in the promotion of gender equality.
