Changemakers School was created to develop essential skills needed for young people to create meaningful positive change in their communities through easily accessible online learning and grant funding opportunities.
We have had an enormously positive response to the launch of Changemakers School this year, enrolling over 1080 students from over 60 countries. Building on this positive response, we added new content to our courses, have been working on both the Spanish and Portuguese translations of the courses as well as developing new courses set to go live in 2021.
We entered into a partnership with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation who provided scholarships and grant funding to young changemakers from Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi to foster youth led community development in those countries. We are in talks with other organisations to provide scholarships to young leaders from Asia and the Middle East to
Changemakers School in the coming months.
During the first granting cycle, we awarded 11 grants to youth-led projects that were created through our Project Management course, with plans to host another call for applications for grants early next year.
This growth would not be possible without the generous support of people like yourself. Thank you so much for allowing us to provide online learning for changemakers globally! We look forward to growing Changemakers School and reaching more young people around the world.
