It is important to change the stereotyped notion that youth are irresponsible and isolated. Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) pledges to provide opportunities for education, training and employment; and facilitate participation in sports, entertainment, arts and culture for the youth who comprise a majority of our population.

MDP views youth as the most valuable resource of the nation; and an important foundation for national development is the presence of an educated and trained generation. Hence, MDP has designed a variety of programs to ensure Maldivian youth are healthy, educated, trained, productive, capable people.

This manifesto thus has policies and programs of great benefit to youth. All programs are designed to benefit youth directly and indirectly. Policies with special focus on youth include a variety of education and training programs and career guidance programs. Programs for arts and culture development and sports will also be implemented.
