Meet children changing their world for the better
Watch children from our programs share how they’re using their voice to realize their rights
By Brianne Binelli, online content manager, Canada
As you prepare to celebrate Canada Day this weekend, take a moment to revel in the great work youth are doing in the communities where we work around the world.
Meet amazing teens like Yilikal (pictured) from Ethiopia who joined a girls’ club. “Although this club is for girls, after seeing bad things happen — such as kidnapping, early marriage and rape — my brothers and I decided to take action and join the club,” said the 15-year-old.
At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we believe in ensuring children and youth know their rights so they can use their voices to make their own positive change.
Watch the video below, and see how a child or teen can make a big impact in their world.
