Hello and welcome to the blog of the 5th anniversary YA. I am writing from Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, one of the hosts for the project. Working with Dr. Elaine Valdov of the IICP, we have constructed another great opportunity for young people to discuss, learn about, and share their actual and emerging projects in support of MDG fulfillment.
Since we began working together, it has been my dream to see the MDGs more widely known and to help in any small way to ensure that young people were taking a leadership role in their success. We hope this platform serves those ends.
Over the past four years we have met so many very talented young people doing great projects all over the world. From NGO service, to the arts for peace, to social entrepreneurship that creates important new social enterprise on all levels, it is staggering how many good things are being done in the field. The YA is a great opportunity to learn about those efforts, report back on the work you are doing out there, and to hear the inspiring words of those who care about the very same goals you do.
I personally cannot to wait to meet you all virtually and actually on the blog and at the UN this summer.
Thank you for signing up and being a part of our success!
