Do you want to promote the rights of children all around the world? Then we want you! The KidsRights Changemakers Movement is looking for every child and teenager who wants to move the world for children’s rights. Join! Everybody can be a changemaker!
Once you are a member of the Movement, you can hand in a project plan for the Changemakers Program. This plan consists of your idea to do something about an issue that children face, anywhere in the world, on a daily basis. No matter how small or big your plan, you can do it! KidsRights will share tips & tricks, feedback on your plan and promote your project on our global platform. Eventually you can even apply for a small fund to further improve your activities!
The program is applicable to everybody between the ages of 12 and 24 who wants to promote the rights of children.
The Changemakers Program consists of 3 phases:
- The first stage is the Action Developer.
Everybody starts as an Action Developer. This is how we get to know each other and you get to learn how to create a practical project or action plan and execute it too. We support you in writing, executing and evaluating your project plan by providing feedback, tips & tricks and answering questions. When your project been approved, we also place your story on our worldwide platform, sending your message all across the globe!
Quickly check if your changemaking idea is eligible for the Action Developer by taking our quickscan! Join the Movement and download the project plan template!
- The second stage is the Fund Catcher.
When you have completed the Action Developer stage, you can hand in another project plan as an Action Developer or you can hand in a project plan for the Fund Catcher and apply for a small fund (maximum of €500,-) to improve your activities. We will support you in this stage again by providing feedback, tips & tricks and answering questions. And of course Fund Catchers will also get a spot on our platform for the world to see!
- The third stage is the Dreaming Big.
Have you completed projects as an Action Developer and Fund Catcher and do you aspire to found your own youth organization (or did you already do this and want to expand it)? Then we can provide you with custom-made professional support in Dreaming Big, financial support included!
