Jóvenes Trabajando por la Defensa de su Comunidad - Nibureintiña Nadagimei Luagu Hagaira (NANIGU)

NANIGU was formed in 2009 following a territory-wide assembly in Garífuna, where youth called for a platform with which they could advance their agendas and promote youth's participation in civil and political life. NANIGU promotes debate about human rights priorities among Garifuna youth, raises awareness through radio programs and increases youth's capacity to participate in community and national decision-making spaces.
