We are looking for stories from young Africans who are trying to advocate for change in their communities, related to employment, education, girls' empowerment or other areas such as climate change, human rights, orany other relevant topic.
The most powerful stories will be featured in a new UNICEF Youth Advocacy Guide that will be launched in early 2019. This guide will equip young people with knowledge and advice on how to bring about change on our continent. All completed submissions will be credited in the final guide.
Share your story if you are between the ages 13 and 25 and live in Sub-Saharan Africa.
All submissions must be received by midnight South African time on 7 January 2019.
You can also share photos, videos, artwork, poems or songs related to your story submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include your name and country in your email.
For any other questions or concerns please write to UNICEF Youth Engagement Officer, Maryam Elgoni at email@example.com, or to our implementing partner, Youth@SAIIA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
