Our 9th cohort of youth leaders

Our 9th cohort of youth leaders were selected at the end of 2018, a few weeks in advance of the beginning of the new school year in January 2019. These seven boys and five girls join 16 other boys and 22 girls currently supported, and 64 alumni, to-date. Our selection criteria is based on demonstrated leadership and academic performance in primary school, and circumstances of the individuals that place them at great risk of failing to realize their potential as change-maker recognized by their teachers and community leaders. In other words, these are young women and men who could do great things, and simply need the opportunity. It is exciting to consider this group of young people, and who among them are future teachers, doctors, business owners, activists and other jobs that will bring positive change to their community!
