This unparalleled and unprecedented strategy is in consonance with the current administration’s policy of supporting youth engagement and growth through their active participation in the political field. equally supports and encourages the aspirations of the vast majority of the youths in the nation who wish to be actively involved in politics or/and who desire to vote and be voted for.

The modus operandi is simplified to enable youths join their voices in their quest to actively get involved in the political process as leaders of tomorrow. They simply log on to the online platform, create a campaign, register as volunteers, make donations to support candidates or get the latest political related news as it pertains to youth. It also incorporates an app which is available for download on a mobile device.
