Youth for Change

Safecity- Elsa D'Silva
Posted August 2, 2019 from India

On 17th April, Safecity conducted a tweetchat with @TheGenderLab about their fellowship program and youth for change.

The chat began by noting the biggest challenges for young girls in India and what can be done to bridge this gap of inadequate opportunities for women. The audience shared solutions on how women leaders can recreate safe spaces and platforms for others and how this fit into the Gender narrative. Ayushi Banerji and The Gender Lab then spoke about the fellowship and how it contributes to youth leadership and women empowering.

Hi Elsa,

Thanks for sharing this tweetchat synopsis. This sounds like a great topic to tackle, too. I hope that more opportunities will become available for girls in the near future to bridge, and close the gap.

Hope you're doing well, and having a great Friday!
