NAYORA created cooperative relationships with a range of agencies and organizations of the UN and became a sustainable partner at the local level in the field of work with teenagers and youth. Till this time there were different short-term and long-term projects and events organized with UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, ILO, UNEP, also with The Office of Specific Ambassador of Secretary General of UN in the field of Youth. This partnership covered promotion of the Sustainable Development Goals, youth policy, the rights of children and adolescents, youth health, youth participation and other topics.
