The YP Foundation
October 8, 2009
I first encountered TYPF several years ago while reviewing applications to attend my former employer's sexual and reproductive rights and health advocacy training. The proposal from TYPF's Ishita Chaudhry stood out as a bright, fresh and innovative perspective on youth organizing and we invited her (representing TYPF) to come to the training and be with us an Asia regional youth conference on sexual and reproductive rights and health. From this, the organization that I had worked with (IWHC) forged a very strong bond with the great work on TYPF that still exists today. TYPF has succeeded in repeatedly working on their strategic plan to make themselves the most effective that they can be. They appeal to young people and foster a strong, palpable link of their everyday lives to the policies and laws that people so often ignore. This is not only local links to policy but regional, national and international. I really look forward to the great strides that they will take in the future.
