Project Summaries –

This activity seeks to increase Transparency International Sri Lanka's (TISL) understanding of youth perspectives on the current reform and governance context to identify opportunities to engage them in meaningful civic activities. Despite the high level of youth participation in the People’s movement last year, there has since been a decline in youth civic engagement. The reason for this decline is multifaceted; however there has been no formal assessment of youth on the reasons for the decline. SL Engage will provide financial assistance to TISL to implement focus group discussions with 200 youth between the ages of 18 to 30 from 10 districts from the Western, Central and Southern Provinces. The provision of assistance through this grant will provide a basis on which civic engagement could be increased.
