Children can change the world, one idea at a time

Watch inspired young people making a difference in their communities

Child threads yarn between trees

When given the opportunity to learn and dream, children can achieve amazing things. We see that every day in our programs, and the video below from variety show, Wonderama, reminds us how inspired children can change their world for the better.

One 12-year-old inventor explained how she’s doing just that. She shared her products, which caught the attention of organizers from the national Invention Convention in the United States. “It’s water-dissolvable plastic bags and water-dissolvable (plastic) soda rings, because 13-million tonnes of plastic trash gets dumped into the ocean every year,” she says.

Education can help spark creative ideas and empower children to be imaginative. In our programs, we encourage kids to be active, engaged citizens, by expanding their networks, providing leadership opportunities and more.

With a bit of encouragement, every young dreamer can make a difference and inspire others to believe in their aspirations. Join us today to learn more about how you can help children achieve their dreams through an educational gift.
