Whether teaching girls to how to build robots in El Salvador & Nigeria, facilitating access to drinking water in impoverished neighborhoods in Venezuela or bringing solar electricity to rural schools in Malawi, the young people we support through our programs are creating positive change in their communities. Our goal is to provide 1000 changemakers from +100 countries with the tools and resources needed to execute and scale sustainable solutions through our online project management training.
The world continues to face extreme inequalities, humanitarian crises, climate change, and severe problems that challenge the advancement of the SDG agenda. Young people have not only innovative ideas, but also the drive to see them through, but due to their age or their geographical location, many youth around the world still lack access to resources that build their skills, connect them with international networks and support them to realize and scale their initiatives.
Global Changemakers helps the youngest generation of community workers, advocates and social entrepreneurs to take the lead to create a sustainable future. By identifying young promising talents and enhancing their capacity through mentoring, an online school or seed-funding, they will innovate and find solutions to the challenges that affect them and their communities.
We aim to contribute to sustainable and inclusive youth-lead development by supporting the work of 1,000 changemakers aged 15-29 from 140 countries. Through our programmes, we have been able to develop young leaders at an unparalleled global scale and offer targeted support to youth-led initiatives. Evidence and reporting so far has shown a demonstrated ripple effect from these initiatives in their communities.
