MENA Youth in Humanitarian Action is a coalition of nonprofit organizations active in the United Nations. Young people are chosen to participate through a rigorous application process and undergo a three-day training on what it means to engage with philanthropy. Post training, students carry out service projects either through a nonprofit organization or in their host community.
The MENA Youth in Humanitarian Action operates with the aim to:
- Foster an inclusive and participatory space for young people
- Link humanitarian action to emerging concepts like social innovation
- Provide young people with an international platform to share their experiences with volunteerism
