YiP IN has been an international organisation from the start: it is an organisation of international collaboration and exchange.
Despite the different contexts, the challenges facing youth in conflict with the law are the same worldwide. So by working together, YiP believes as an international organisation we can build on each other's experiences. This means we provide each other with a fresh perspective, and stay focused.
YiP is currently active in five different countries: Colombia, Kenya, Malawi, the Netherlands and South Africa. We work with five local organisations running local YiP programmes, because we believe that local knowledge is a key requirement for YiP to flourish.
In Colombia we work with Ayara; in Kenya with Yaden; in Malawi with Music Crossroads; in the Netherlands with YiP the Netherlands; and in South Africa with YiP South Africa. For more details, click on the country names.
In 2016 we ended our 3 year CIDTP program in Malawi and South Africa, which received most of the funding from the EU (DEVCO). Our program was externally evaluated by Impact Consulting in 2016.
