OUR ROLE

Ever since YCAB International Inc. (est. 2006) in Atlanta, Georgia USA, we are committed to expand our programs to Least Developed countries. We look for opportunities and program partners who have the alignment with our mission, that is, to empower youth through a holistic development program.

For this reason, YCAB Foundation seeds programs in a few other countries, partnering with British Council’s Global ChangeMakers. Through this program, YCAB is able to reach out and empower youths from all over the world. To date, YCAB has seeded five international projects related to education and women empowerment. The unique part of it, all of this international program are led by young people from the respective country. The countries of active operation are: Afghanistan, Mongolia, Myanmar, Pakistan and Uganda.

This is just the beginning of YCAB journey to contribute to the society globally. YCAB International is projected to reach out to more countries in South East Asia like Laos, Cambodia, East Timor and Vietnam between 2015-2020.
