Global Changemakers is an international youth organisation and global pioneer in supporting youth-led sustainable development. Our mission is to support youth to create positive change towards more inclusive, fair and sustainable communities. We do this by providing skills development, capacity building, mentoring and grants. Young people are the key to success for the Sustainable Development Goals, yet donor funding rarely goes to young people and youth-led projects. Even when funding may be available, support and resources to develop the skills and capacity of these young leaders are often missing. Global Changemakers works to fill this gap – and the results are astounding.
To date, we have trained thousands of young people in over 180 countries through both online and in-person training. We have also provided grants to over 396 youth-led projects which have had a combined impact on over 8,3 million people.
