I am passionate about
ActionsI chose to work with talented young people who are drop out of school who
were left from the education system in Kiribati. Since the establishment of
the Kiribati Children Campaigners Network in late 2013, there youth voice
have been utilized in composing/tailoring of advocacy and awareness
programmes, making them employable.
Volunteerism was introduced as a key to youth development. Capacity building
programmes also allowed members to attend regional and international capacity
building programmes, for the first time.
Our first campaign in 2014 was on Climate Change which has contributed to the
voice of young people on atoll nations to World Leaders at the global level.
22 youth of the KCCN traveled to the Republic of Marshal Islands to form a
Coalition of Youth of Atoll Nations on Climate Change that allowed young
people of the two nations to share their plight and to work closely on joint
advocacy to take youth pleas to World Leaders.
With increasing number of youth engaged in programmes, there has been a
reduced in social problems in general and an increased in global advocacy on
Climate Change, Poverty, Health through music.
