The power of stories: Project Amplify helps young leaders call for education action
Meet the new recruits to Project Amplify - Theirworld's initiative to help young activists make their voices heard even more strongly for action on education.
They're aged 21 to 28 and are all part of Theirworld’s Global Youth Ambassador programme - a network of almost 2,000 young campaigners. The 2022 Project Amplify cohort comes from as far apart as Peru, Nepal, South Africa and Azerbaijan.
Our media and communication skills training will help them become even more confident advocates for education by telling their stories more effectively in their communities and beyond.
