Who We Are !

College of Youth Activism and Development

Young people constitute the largest segment of the Pakistani population and around 67% of them are between 15-35 years of age. Our youth is currently facing the most formidable challenges that they are not equipped to deal with. This is particularly true for people belonging to remote areas of Pakistan (e.g. in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa). In the wake of this predicament, CYAAD is making a difference by filling the void to repel the darkness that lies deep within our society. CYAAD works with young men and women who are in dire need of social and technical guidance to carve a bright future for themselves.

The creation of CYAAD is a bold step to empower Pakistani youth by providing them with opportunities of education, technical training and broad scale engagement. CYAAD is dedicated to make a contribution for poverty alleviation, positive local engagement of our youth in the political system, imparting education and technical training to encourage entrepreneurship and social development, as well as to counter extremism and radicalization (leading to ethnic and religious intolerance).
