Young Leaders Ruby and Erin held workshop to teach young people about campaigning for human rights.
Erin and Ruby were trying to train young people in campaigning against issues concerning human rights. They contacted Amnesty International and asked for their help in preparing a training course for 15 young students.
Everyone benefitted greatly from the course, having gained confidence in public speaking and raising their voice about various issues as well as improving their overall communication skills. They topped off the course by leading their own campaign/protest for human rights issues too.
They next plan to hold a fundraiser to raise money for Amnesty International and more can be expected of them regarding social action in the future too!
