Our Story

The idea of Youth Advocacy Council (YAC) was conceived by a group passionate and self-motivated young leaders who aimed to strengthen capacity and role of the marginalized communities specifically Transgender persons, Youth and minorities for achieving Sustainable Development Goals. As a registered as non-profit, non-political and non-religious youth-led organization, under Societies registration act, XXI (CSR-755/2012), we are committed to serve the needs of vulnerable youths, and marginalized groups, particularly the transgenders and minorities across Pakistan. Through generous support of partners, our project seeks to deign social and educational interventions that aimed at educating, sensitizing, and preventing transgenders and young people in Pakistan against HIV/Aids and transphobic stigmas and provide them an enabling environment for personal growth, social and economic empowerment. Since its inception in 2012, despite having limited human and financial resources, we have been successful to create a vibrant forum for youth and deprived communities including indigenous people, minorities, transgenders, and rural women to facilitate dialogue, enable meaningful discussion to ensure ensuring their participation in development intervention, with special emphases their socio-economic empowerment, and helps to bring them into mainstream politics, raise their voices in policy and legislation in collaboration with CSO, multilateral and government organizations.
