SB Action

Under this program, social business projects will be developed not only to reduce and alleviate poverty, but also the social problems associated with it such as health, education, gender-based violence, etc. Projects will focus on exploring how technological methods and devices can be applied to the pressing needs of society to empower people in securing their own livelihoods.

An essential component of the projects is that they will all be gender mainstreamed. Considering that poverty and gender are closely interlinked, YCA will fill in an important gap by incorporating a gender approach. Specifically this means that for each project, the implications for both women and men from a specific community will be assessed in a way that avoids perpetuating current gender inequalities or creating new ones.
