At Power Of Pads one of our guiding principles is that ‘girls and women are at the heart of everything we do’, and we are committed to supporting girls to reach their potential by enabling them to continue in school and be part of the positive change our world needs.
Today there are 1.2 billion young people aged 15 to 24 years, accounting for 16 per cent of the global population. What a positive force for change and development they can be, if given the knowledge and opportunities to thrive. But with challenges such as poverty reduction, social inclusion, healthcare, biodiversity conservation and climate change mitigation, they have a huge task.
On this International Youth Day it’s important to ensure our youth are able to continue to amplify efforts collectively and individually for the good of our population and planet, but also recognise that sadly, many young innovators from the vulnerable and marginalized community are still left behind. Let us enable and support them in their efforts and continue to celebrate their successes.
