We have the pleasure of supporting and endorsing projects being implemented by youth from around the world, focusing on everything from cultural identity to career and leadership education, mental health and entrepreneurship. So far, some of these have been supported by the Youth Empowerment Project (YEP), which provided start-up grants and opportunities for learning and honing skills to help implement their projects. We've seen first hand how hard these Uyghur youth have worked on their projects and urge you to check them out and give them your support!
