Restless Development

Company Detail


Young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being ignored and overlooked.


We work with young people so that they can lead in solving those challenges. Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities.

We are run out of hubs in ten countries across Africa, Asia and in the UK and USA, with a wider network of partners across the world. We have been working with young people since 1985 and our work is led by thousands of young volunteers and advocates every year.


Young people have powerful voices. We are here to make sure their voices are heard.


We asked 5000 young people in 64 countries what changes are needed to tackle the big challenges in the world. Whether in a refugee camp on the edge of a conflict or trying to find employment in an urban setting, this is what they told us:

Young people want their voices heard in decisions that matter to them most, from their communities to government.
Young people want to get the skills needed to make a living and succeed in life.
Young people want ownership over the decisions that affect their bodies, health and wellbeing.
Young people want to build strong communities that work together to solve issues they care about.
With all of this power, they can lead in solving any challenges they face.
