Restless Development

No matter the problem, Restless Development exists to help young people to find solutions and lead their communities to a better life


‘The secondary school in Makole is the leading school for dropouts because of teenage pregnancies’

Aisha, 24, Tanzania

Aisha walks from house to house, knocking on doors and speaking to her community in Makole, just outside of Dodoma, Tanzania’s capital since 1974. She asks people questions about how the local health clinic could serve them better.

Aisha is one of Restless Development’s 24,485 young leaders in 74 different countries. We trained Aisha to collect data and use it to campaign on problems that affect
her community.

Thanks to Aisha’s work, the local health clinic has trained more staff to provide specialist care to young people and women, helping to reduce early pregnancies in her community.

Restless Development works with thousands of young people every year who are on a mission to change their communities and the world for the better. We provide training to young people to support their journey to lead change.

Be part of their journey too. Support Restless Development and young leaders like Aisha.
