Youth Participatory Action Research in Niger

Niger

Participatory Action Research with Youth to Document Perceived Changes Related to Family Planning, Reproductive Health, Gender Relations, and Leadership Among Young People in Niger

Recognizing the positive outcomes that drove this program scale-up, in 2020, E2A supported student leaders in the ULC program with an international consultant based in Senegal and Pathfinder staff in Niger to further examine young people’s perceptions and experiences of whether and how their lives have been influenced by ULC and CLC interventions. Using a youth-led participatory action research (YPAR) approach that engages young people as investigators themselves, E2A aimed to document the impact of the ULC and CLC programs on the lives of students at the universities of Niamey and Zinder, as well as youth in the community where the programs were implemented, as related to three key domains of the ULC and CLC programs: access to and use of FP/RH services, gender norms, and youth leadership.

This report presents the findings from this qualitative study, as well as a description of the process of implementing the YPAR approach, offering insights that may be useful to guide future AYSRH programming efforts. Additionally, briefs are available in English and French.
