Adolescents in developing countries are being left behind when it comes to health.
We know how to reach them.
YEDI’s flagship programme is called SKILLZ Naija. It is offered as four-pronged training modules stratified by age and gender, targeting in and out-of-school youth.
YEDI engages adolescents around their health using the Grassroot Soccer (GRS)
3C’s (Curriculum, Coaches, Culture) methodology, which leads to improved health outcomes as measured across GRS’s 3A’s impact model (Assets, Access, Adherence).
