Children and young people have what it takes to change their community when they’re seen and heard. Look no further than this Global Goals video depicting youth from around the world taking a stand and making their voices heard as they successfully fight for their human rights.

“We are bottled up with great potential; we have the potential in us. If you don’t make a move now, you may regret it in the future,” says a student activist in the video, who noticed an educational gap and fought to improve his community.

Many of us want to spur inspiration and change so there’s peace, equality and prosperity for all — just like the world is doing by working towards the United Nations’ Global Goals. At Children Believe, we advance child rights and protection. In fact, in 2020/2021, 200,000+ child, youth, parents and others were trained to defend child rights.
