Apply NOW! Deadline of application: 28th October 2019 (Mon)
Plan International strives for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We cordially invite young people who are interested in social and child protection issues to join ‘Be a Change-maker 2020’. Through a series of activities from Jan to June 2020, participants will take the first step to becoming global citizens through learning, researching, and taking action to make a voice for children around the world, especially for girls overcoming adversity.
Training Workshops and Community Seed Projects
By joining our local workshops and experiential activities, participants will learn about the concepts of global citizenship and child protection. Participants will also have a better understanding of their local communities. With Plan International Hong Kong’s ‘Be a Change-maker’ seed funding, participants will plan and execute their own community seed projects to address the child protection issues they care about, and to create positive changes in the community.
7-day Exposure Trip to Northern Thailand
As part of ‘Be a Change-maker 2020’, participants will visit Northern Thailand in February 2020. With the support from Plan International’s Thailand Office, participants will visit the child protection and youth advocacy programmes supported by Plan International in local communities to gain a deeper understanding into the daily lives of local children. Participants will also meet with Thai youth to share their advocacy experience in promoting child protection in the community.
