COVID One Year In: Hearing from Young People, Grantee Partner Organisations, and Programme Officers

Marginalised young people around the world—especially girls—continue to reel from the COVID-19 pandemic. One year into the crisis, EMpower wanted to hear first-hand from young people and our grantee partners, the local organisations in emerging market countries that work with them, about the impact of the crisis on their lives. So we undertook global surveys of our grantee partners and young people and separate participatory research in India to: ensure our grantmaking is responsive, and share the realities and on-the-ground recommendations of young people and local organisations with other funders, supporters, and wider audiences.

We also sought feedback from our own program officers, who have deep knowledge of their regions, countries, and grantee partners, as well as a strong understanding of global trends in philanthropy and youth development.
