Project Summary, Objectives and Results

Project Summary

During previous forums, which took place only in Dushanbe, a huge gap was observed between the young people from the capital and those from other regions of the country, both in terms of the number of participants and the quality of ideas presented. In 2012 the format for the forum was changed and similar forums were organized: Digital Youth of Sughd (by Youth 21st Century jointly with Kulob State University) in Kulob, and Digital Youth of Khatlon (by IT Center Qova and Tajik State University of Law, Business and Politics) in Khujand.

Project Objectives

To mobilize youth in the regions of Tajikistan to address social and economic challenges in society using ICT tools and to reduce the gap between young people from the capital and those living in other regions of RT.
