Ezidi Youth Network – EYN

For decades, the Ezidi community has been confronted with numerous conflicts affecting their lives and liberties. The 2014 genocide by ISIS resulted in the plain destruction of the societal fabric of the Ezidi community. In order to revitalize and empower the society Farida Global Organization and Voice of Ezidis are thrilled to announce the establishment of the Ezidi Youth Network (EYN).

EYN aims at helping youth develop their bright ideas and transform them into actions to build a fairer society, and supporting them in their leadership role to address challenging conditions. This will allow youth to effectively contribute and enhance their capability to produce changes in their communities. Participation in EYN has many characteristics for the youth themselves, as well as for the society. One of the many advantages of a membership is that the network provides young people with a forum to fully, effectively deal with issues that are especially important to youth. 

EYN seeks to provide practical volunteering opportunities, exchange of experiences and partnerships with youth and student groups from international communities to share awareness about our ongoing genocide and to build a sustainable network standing in solidarity with our efforts. We also support youth to be a part of transforming our world and supporting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals, these UN SDGs will be at the core of our work.

The Sinjar Youth Center (SYC) will gather all the individuals centers spread into the Sinjar region to create a collaborative effort to revive the region after the genocide. This aims at fostering cooperation between all the centers and moves towards the general social benefit of the region. 

We believe that youth can have a tremendous impact on society and that the background, situation of Ezidi story of struggle is unique and the commitment of its youth can be a valuable example to other communities who live in ongoing suffering as we do. Whether you are a young or youthful, or simply someone concerned about your community, we motivate you to participate actively to reach the endeavours Ezidi Youth Network with its core principles of: empowerment, positivity, cooperation, respect and diversity to fulfill following objectives:
