Hope for Children

AZAR is committed to making a difference in the lives of youth by providing a variety of training and development programs in the area of health, education, social resources, and exposure to diverse career options.



Our Youth Advocacy Program {YAP} goal is to empower young people in their everyday lives.

YAP attempts to provide support to young people in all areas that affect them, be it

  • education,
  • housing,
  • employment, unemployment,
  • health, social security,
  • recreation and
  • human relationships.

YAP also gives to the young person insights into the adult world of decision making and the exercising of authority, and enhances the young person’s understanding of legal process. This helps the young person to make clear choices about issues that affect their everyday life. YAP assists young people in using existing social systems to develop a real sense of self-worth. Thus, young people are in a better position to be responsible for themselves and more able to deal with society’s demands.

YAP is an established framework for workers to use with young people across all social levels. Its emphasis is to empower young people through their own actions in situations that affect them. YAP is a reflection of the principles of human rights in practice.
