We are delighted to share a blog written by student Abdul Razak, from Asanteman Secondary School, delivering a Global Goals project for the 2020-21 GSL Global Goals Competition.
Their project is among over 957 social action projects currently running as part of the GSL movement and we are excited to be supporting them to design and lead positive social change in their community.
I am enthused and privileged to be part of GLS fellowship to transform lives
I had so many financial problem concerning my education, so I decided not to go to school anymore. One day, my colleagues was watching a video on a whatsapp and I saw these innocent children being injured and starved and had no place to go. At that moment, I was very heartbroken so I vowed to build to make this world better and save for the future generation by building schools and hospitals across the global world.
I have developed a strong self confidence after a small research about GSL and I hope I will be able to wipe the tears of those innocent lives and make this world save and better.
Our Next Chapter
Yes, we do recommend to other people our age to be engaged and involved in similar projects. We need to consider the benefits of other countries and places, to stop being selfish and think that the world only revolves around us. We need to unite and give a hand where it’s needed, every person can make a difference, regardless of their age! Do remember that this earth gives but never takes. Thus, don’t ever think of it in the way of, “what will I get in return?”, because everything good you do will have at least 1 benefit. You may not notice it immediately, but at the end you and everybody elsewhere will notice it as well. Furthermore, if you listen to our advice, and participate in the GSL, do believe that your involvement and interaction is already a win! Work hard and be positive.
The 2020-21 GSL Global Goals Competition is now open and runs until June 2021. If you belong to one of the 500+ teams of students currently delivering a social action project as part of the competition we would love to hear from you and feature your blog and project photos on our website to inspire others.
