From @savechildrenuk - Welcome to the world Rozina! The first baby to be born our new health facility, just one week after it opened. Swipe 👉 to see more of her story.
Rohingya refugee and first time mum, Humaira, 20, sits cradling her new born baby at the maternity ward run by our team in Cox’s Bazar. Humaira explains: “The staff treated me very well. They took such good care of me and my baby. And they are still checking up on me. I am so happy for their help and very thankful.” Thanks to your amazing support we’ve opened a new 16-bed Primary Health Care Centre in Cox’s Bazar, so both Rohingya and Bangladeshi children and families have they care they need.
From @slum2school - Our volunteers are the heart of our organization. They are mentors to our children, teachers in the classroom, guardians where there are no parents, sponsors and leaders. Our children learn from them, get inspired by them and succeed because of them. We love the interview by @omodara_ who leads our children mentorship team. As volunteers we lead by example and our children learn by watching us.
from @theirworldorg - "I won an award for creating a digital dictionary while at school and this inspired me to develop my IT and leadership skills further. I was able to build one of the largest volunteer based organizations in Sri Lanka, Micro:bit SLUG. We started with three of my colleagues and today we have 400+ registered volunteers, from all walks of life. We are trying to empower children with IT skills, which is not an easy task, neither is leading a team of volunteers but I am passionate about my work and I make sure they feel this too!" --- Prabhath Mannapperuma on IT and Leadership #WYSD#SkillsChangeLives
From @theirworldorg - "I use my communication skills to break barriers to education by volunteering with several organisations which are fighting for the rights of women and girls in my country and around the world, I have attended community outreach programs where I used my communication skills to sensitise communities about the rights of women and girls.
I have used my leadership skills to start a non profit organization called the No Box Foundation - which is a nonprofit youth lead organization focused on empowering women and girls to realise and harness their full potential. We organise mentorship programs for teenage girls as well." --- Mary Mam Degen Fye @mamlovelyfye on Communication and Leadership #WYSD@SkillsChangeLives
We can't keep our eyes close the children, they deserve better from @unicefnextgen - 2 year old Muhammad is one of over 650,000 Rohingya who have fled violence in Myanmar in the past year. After the Myanmar military set fire to his house, Muhammad and his mother, Sasaida, sought refuge in a UNICEF supported nutrition clinic. As of April 2018, over 182,000 children in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh have received educational and psychological support. In the wake of massive violence and tragedy, we must ensure that children are receiving the care they need to limit further trauma. #takeaction#childrenfirst#unicefusa#nextgen#rohingya#refugeecrisis#unicef 📸 UNICEF
#endchildmarriage from @theirworldorg - "Speak out against barriers to education and raise your voice. I speak at all platforms such as policy dialogues, youth forums, social media and international meetings to end child marriages that is a big hurdle to girls education." --- Umair Asif @ranaumairasif on Communication and Public Speaking #WYSD#SkillsChangeLives
From @theirworldorg - "Students are key stakeholders in education and it is time that we take ownership of our lives and our education. As Chair of the Commonwealth Students Association, together with my team we advocate and amplify the voices, needs and aspirations of students to decisionmakers and empower them to be active catalysts in shaping the education system. When I think of leadership, I think of the underlying foundation of service with humility, integrity and inclusivity." --- Maisha Reza @maisha.90 on Leadership #WYSD#SkillsChangeLives

I find giving brings me more happiness than receiving. It may sound corny, but I’m sure I am not unique in this. I am not rich but I count my blessings. My blessings may not feel as a blessing to others but I’m built up of challenges. With this standpoint, I will give where I can always ☔️ Stay tuned for a new project is up soon! #sensesdubai #achildisachild #foreverychild#philanthropist#maf
