About Restless Development.
Restless Development is an innovative, global non profit that strengthens Youth Power: the collective force of young leaders to create a better world. We strengthen youth-leadership and youth civil society to be at the forefront of creating lasting change and impact, on our impact priority areas: Education & Livelihoods, Gender & Sexual Rights, Voice & Demoracy and Climate Justice. We are independently registered and governed in nine countries (India, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda, UK, USA, Zambia and Zimbabwe) with a global team of over 230 people and a growing youth collective of 4000 youth civil society groups in over 180 countries.
Never has investing in youth-led change been more necessary. Young leaders have been shaping the response to the pandemic in many of the poorest economies, leading the fight for climate justice, and educating their peers on sexual rights and gender. Young people are already leading the way in creating a better world, they are leading and supporting each other. Yet 75% of youth organisations globally have reported funding cuts since the start of the pandemic. Restless Development works to strengthen youth leadership – in our impact driven programmes and by strengthening youth civil society.
In May 2022, we launched our new global strategy. We recognise that how we do our work is as important as what we do. We are a feminist, anti-racist agency. We recognise the growing inequalities and injustices and are intentional in our efforts to shift power, enabling young people and communities who have previously been marginalised to lead. We not only want to achieve impact on the issues we work on, we also want to create an alternative to the top-down international development sector, proving the success of an alternative that is inclusive, ensures youth civil society can thrive and lead lasting change.
