The 2014 My Rights, My Voice (MRMV) Annual Progress Report provides an overview of the programme's progress as well as developments and highlights in the third year.
Children and youth, especially girls and young women, living in poverty are among the most marginalized and voiceless within society. Almost half the world's population are under the age of 25 and almost 85 percent of those live in developing countries, yet they are rarely central to decision making processes affecting their lives and do not always have the relevant information about their choices or rights.
MRMV is working through partner organizations and directly with marginalized children and youth, their allies and with duty bearers around the world to engage these groups in ways that strengthen and support their voice and rights to health and education, and to ensure that the interests and voices of children and youth will be heard long into the future.
