The IBDA’ Youth program aims to empower youth in various villages as well as schools. Through our curriculum, we empower the youth to address their own priorities using their own resources. Dalia facilitates a democratic decision-making process that ensures transparency and accountability within the community. In other words, The IBDA’ program is youth controlled; meaning that the youth decide through a voting process how each grant is spent. Through public meetings, initiatives are discussed to address their needs and urgencies. They then, develop solutions and present them in another public meeting. The youth groups then vote for the best initiatives that benefit them. After the voting day, a local monitoring and evaluation committee is established, to ensure accountability and transparency to the community, and the proper implementation of the initiatives. Prior, during, and after implementation, we provide capacity building training and workshops that differ according to the priorities addressed by the youth. We also link them to our vast network of resources. The solutions to their community problems target the entire community including women, men, children, youth, and people with disabilities. We work with the youth to ensure their proposed initiatives support their communities, in particular, their local economy.
It is worth mentioning that this program is in partnership with Drosos Foundation.

What’s the duration of the follow-up period after delivering the marketing strategy?
Does the follow up include the actual implementation of marketing tools? For example, if the start-up needs the development of a facebook page. Who is going to do it, the consultant or the entrepreneur?
The actual implementation of the marketing tools is supposed to be executed by the initiators themselves. Yet the basic training shall include the basics of implementation. They should be aware of the basics to do so.
