I am Ilyas Asar , civil society and human rights activist and a youth leader in Afghanistan.
I am working with Afghan youth to get empowered and enabled to take part in their communities, region and national level discussion and decision making, and be part of the change since 2007.
I am also leading a youth lead and youth focused non-profit organization in Baghlan -a north eastern province in Afghanistan- by the name of cooperation for social improvement organization - CSIO trough which I am supporting communities to be part of change in their communities and support the process of development through civic engagement.
I am one of selected delegates for south Asian youth summit 2018 to represent my country (Afghanistan).
Attending the event helps me out to enhance my knowledge and learn from the experience of the other 449 delegates from other countries and use the knowledge to my community, region and country welfare.
My organization and government cant help me out on preparing the costs of my travel and I am also unable to pay the charges.
To attend the event I have to seek sponsors for my travel and stay costs in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Thank you for your time!
