Youth Volunteers for Development and Environment Conservation (YOVENCO)

Peace Building and Good Governance

Without the ability of citizens to directly participate in decision-making and hold public officials  accountable, the critical benefits of good governance, such as social justice, poverty reduction, and economic development cannot be achieved.

YOVENCO works to promote participatory mechanisms for civic participation in governance.

This, in turn, aligns development priorities with community goals; thus enhancing communication between the state and citizens; expanding the
resources available to the poor, and strengthening the capacity of civil society to represent and advocate for
their communities.
