Resume:

This is a project for youth by youth. This is one of the most ambitious youth led projects that Dreamtown has been involved in to date. This is a project directly engaging more than 30 youth led organisations – from across Harare and Bulawayo – and more than 7000 young people, from slum communities – around a shared cause. To make strides towards tackling the mental health crisis affecting young people across Zimbabwe. The youth led civil society are increasingly bringing voice to the same concern. Young people’s fundamental wellbeing is under pressure. Within the most marginalised slum communities, we are witnessing an explosive rise of anxiety and depression. More and more youth are engaged in drug abuse. And the numbers of suicides are increasing. Thorugh this project we will build the capacity of CBOs to engage in advocacy. We will faciliate events in slum communities which increase arwareness and inspires action. And we will provide direct health services for vulnerable youth.
