The YADA Network is a pan-African youth network that was created in 2021 by the AHRN Foundation. The network was launched during a workshop in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, which brought together human rights defenders from 13 African countries. The YADA Network aims to:

  • Connect young human rights defenders across Africa
  • Promoting the sharing of experiences between HRDs
  • Capacity-building for young human rights defenders on a range of issues
  • Raising awareness among young activists about non-violence in their advocacy
