UNICEF gives floor to CAR youth through telephony

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has launched the “You Report” project which allows young Central African Republic citizens to express themselves, thanks to a mobile phone hotline covering various issues relating to education, health, security and other problems associated with their fulfillment.Within the framework of the project already implemented in fifteen countries throughout the world, UNICEF signed an agreement with the CAR Ministry of Youth and Sports and four mobile phone companies operating in the country.

The purpose of the project is to facilitate social cohesion and encourage views from young people about their living conditions in order to find adequate solutions to them.

As the spearheads of armed groups in CAR, young people are at the heart of the drive by partners’ support policy for the recovery of the crisis-ridden country.
