200 Young Leaders

Meet the 2016 Class of 200 Young Leaders

Women Deliver's class of 200 Young Leaders comes from 94 countries and work on a variety of issues, including family planning, HIV/AIDS, gender-based violence, and youth leadership and participation.

Alongside receiving a full scholarship to the Women Deliver Conference on 16-19 May 2016 in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Young Leaders will also have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in capacity-building e-learning opportunities that cover sexual and reproductive health and rights issues, advocacy, communications, proposal writing, project management, and monitoring and evaluation.
  • Apply for seed grant funding to implement a community-based project.
  • Make connections with a wide range of people working in the field, including high-level policymakers, donors, and journalists.
  • Join a network of former and current Young Leaders as well as professional mentors to increase advocacy around sexual and reproductive health and rights in their home countries.
  • Attend a two-day youth pre-conference workshop on advocacy around maternal health, with a focus on communications and new technologies, and serve as a youth representative at the conference.
