UNICEF Turkmenistan CO is supporting the Government to conduct the Evaluation of the National Plan of Action for Realization of Children’s rights in Turkmenistan for 2018 – 2022. This is the first National Plan of this kind and a number of achievements were made in the realization of child rights to health, education, protection, and safe environment. Taking into account that the Plan is for children and young people, and inclusive of youth participation in programme planning and implementation, UNICEF initiated for the first time the involvement of Youth into the Evaluation, as facilitators of Focus Groups. Involving youth and encouraging their participation is important for promoting positive youth development and be engaged in programmes as active participants. Their participation also enables them to share their experience with the wider communities. Youth engagement in the Evaluation was driven also by the fact that, due to pandemic prevention measures, the International Consultant was not able to visit Turkmenistan and participating young people reached out to the most vulnerable groups, to assess how the Plan impacted their life. As a result, more than 150 families and 36 children from residential care institutions and regular schools were included in the Focus Groups led by Young SDG Ambassadors. These insights brought much needed information about the results of the Plan and enriched the final report with the information from the field.
