Who We Are

Nile Youth Development Actions (NYDA) is a grassroots catalyzer focusing on advancing the local socio-economic development in the Nile Basin countries.

Our Mission

NYDA was conceived to build a solid and united organization to support young entrepreneurs to create employment in main sectors as agriculture, promote meaningful education that meets the current realities of job mismatch through youth-led research, and advocate for an inclusive youth engagement in co-leadership through comprehensive inter generational dialogue.

Our Vision

An inclusive youth-led development for the present and future generations.

  • Employment focuses on internships and apprenticeships, jobs centers and enhancing digital skills.

  • Inclusive engagement which is fragmented into leadership programs, Inter-Generational Dialogues (IGDs), developing a peace culture, exchange programmes, forums and youth engaging platforms.

Our Philosophy

At NYDA, we believe that youth development is a profession – in the ethos, as a career pathway, conduct, and ethics.

  • The ethos – the intent, spirit, passions, or rationale for working or contributing to the profession.
  • Career Pathways – the formation, training, certifications, continuous development, and different forms in which we can specialize and practice youth development as decent work.
  • Conduct – the systems, processes, and guidelines governing how you operate which ensures you earn the designation of professional.
  • Ethics – (moral, legal, trade guides).
