Rural Youth Voice of Nigeria is a not-for-profit youth-led local organisation founded in 2003 as Movement Against Stds(M.A.S) in Olabisi Onabanjo University. Movement Against Stds(M.A.S) has since transformed to Rural Youth Voice of Nigeria in 2013. The change in name was mainly to incorporate other issues affecting young people that were not covered by the activities of M.A.S. Such issues include but not limited to girls' education and empowerment,youth development and employment,environmental sustainability and good governance.
