Hi! We are Leaders of Today, a community of young leaders and activists from 40 countries across the globe, who will help end extreme poverty by 2030. We're raising funds to realise an online platform, which will allow any young person to take action for a cause they care about, while connecting with other changemakers across the globe and share stories of their impact. Here's what we will achieve this year: - Build a school in Ghana. - Raise awareness to 10,000 people about statelessness. - Provide 38,000+ children with food fortification. - Write 5,000 letters to free a political prisoner. - Provide 400 people in rural Nepal with durable healthcare. - Support a young peace activist, Nawras. More information on the campaigns: www.leadersoftoday.co Why young people to help end poverty? The most succesful movement towards ending extreme poverty has been the process of achieving the Millennium Development Goals. The success was founded on the boldness of the goals. We need more BOLD to create an impact. Young people are bold, full of passion, determination and energy - all of which is needed to really make a difference. Our naivety makes us able to innovate by thinking outside set limits and old ideas. Our inexperience makes us more determinate to learn. Our boldness makes us able to achieve bigger and better than ever imagined. We are big. More than half of the world are people under 30. Growing up surrounded by technology has given us the skills and knowledge to become an extremely interconnected, and therefore powerful and influential generation. Today, it has never been so easy for us to raise our voice and make a difference. Moreover, you can't ignore more than half of the world. It is the world's duty to listen to what our generation has to say and we deserve to be taken seriously. Our huge, powerful, bold and passionate movement therefore can and must play an essential role in ending poverty. The campaigns are ready, we're represented in 40 countries across the globe with a 1 million-reach and are partners with the United Nations, Amnesty International and our Global Advocate, actress Monique Coleman and many more awesome organizations and individuals. Now, we just need enough funding to create the online platform.

Story of how Leaders of Today was founded. Andre Damian, the Founder of Leaders of Today, has worked and travelled across the world to advocate for human rights, children rights and youth empowerment and speaking at TEDx and the United Nations - and has seen the potential of youth-driven impact with his own eyes, when meeting young changemakers from all over the world. He believed their ambition and passion to create social change was extremely inspirational and wanted to create a movement to replicate this power.
