Good Greetings Rebecca,
Thank You for joining. Please feel free to share any resources that You can think of that pertains to the various topics related to Youth. I am planning on opening this up to the wider community very soon. So far, I have spent some time populating this site, so it has plenty of resources to start with. I think I am at that point right now. So, please feel free to share reports, publications, evaluations, data, videos, that You have come across from Your work in South Asia region. It doesn't have to be MercyCorps' work, but Your friends and colleagues' from the region as well. I would particularly like youth led agencies to share their work on this site. Again, thank You for Your time.
