Making a difference - women empowerment!

The three leaders are proudly part of a non-registered initiative called Accessible and Affordable Sanitation for Women (AASW), a global non registered initiative that aims to give girls access to menstrual hygiene and break the social stigma and taboo the issue faces. This will be done by producing handmade reusable sanitary pads for girls who have no access to them and spreading awareness about the importance of menstrual hygiene. The initiative has been integrated into a community service club we run weekly at Isamilo International School Mwanza.

The roots to the lungs

Our city, Xian has high pollution on a daily basis, and our school has the average of 120 PM2.5. We feel that having high pollution doesn't make our school a safe learning environment, as it can have a detrimental effect for us further on in life. Recently, there has been a trend in media called the "10 -year challenge" this is where people compare photos of themselves 10 years ago vs now. Some people have put a new perspective on this challenge, by turning it a comparison of the earth 10 years ago vs now.

It All Starts with the Bathroom

Our team's goal is to help influence a more positive mindset for the people around us by painting the bathrooms. This idea was influenced by the Mapo Bridge. This bridge is a place when many Korean people have committed suicide by jumping over. Suicide is the leading cause of deaths between ages 10-39 in South Korea. To prevent more suicides from happening, there was a project where people put up signs like "Have you eaten?" or "How are you feeling?"

The Giggles Project

We plan to do this by creating an environment where everyone particularly children can have access to quality health care.

Arranging school events as a complete rookie

We've noticed that there aren't much methods we can use to clean our hands in the school bathroom. So we decided that we will install some purell dispensers in each bathroom at school. We've arranged a talent show at the school theatre to raise money to buy the purells. Our mission is to make and sell as many Seed Balls as possible to have green and healthy environment around us.

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW..SEEDS FOR HAPPINESS

Partnership in Discovery

In India the quality of education is relatively poor for the underprivileged community. Despite having a lot of potential, they are unable to get equal opportunities. To us the quality education means which develop sustainable livelihood and empower children to become economically productive and enhance their well-being.

World Of Silence

In the very beginning of our journey, we had identified that all of us wanted to target the differently-abled people. Since that was a very broad topic we chose the hearing impaired community. We felt honoured to work for people in that community but what made this experience even more special for us was meeting the children of the community.

A better environment for a healthier life

Our project is named 'Healthy Mind'. we live in Rwanda and mental health is a very neglected topic in our country. Rwanda is world wide known for its genocide and this event has left a number of people with mental diseases such as post traumatic stress disorder and child trauma. Even 25 years later our elders suffer from mental disease.

Smart Conventions To Shield The Globe

Our topic, plastic consumption and production, have attracted us as students and our school. We researched the topic, and saw how the earth is being tarred apart because of how we abuse plastic and other substances. We were excited to make a difference in our community and contribute in the global goals competition. We noticed in school that students and teachers were using plastic cups and small bottles everyday...
