Blink Youth Evaluator Training
On the 1st of June 2020. Six youth from Gataka Settlement were selected to conduct a household survey of the needs within their community. This was not only a data-gathering exercise but part of Blinks strategy to increase youth capacity in technology-based data gathering, improve their communication skills, and devising youth-led solutions during and post the COVID-19 pandemic.
The youth evaluators reported discovering new talents they were not aware of, feeling more confident, and learning invaluable lessons about their community needs and their role in supporting particularly vulnerable groups at this time.
Blink looks forward to working more with youth within this community to increase their learning opportunities, access to services and economic potential.
