Global Poverty Project ~ Youth Activation

inspiring young people to make a difference
D'Arcy Lunn presenting to school students.An overwhelming enquiry from the 18,000+ attending the public presentation to date has been ‘Is this going to be delivered in schools and for youth?’ Based on this demand, the Global Poverty Project has developed an engaging pedagogy and interactive content ready to be delivered to youth and schools.
It is not a fundraiser or a resource creator. Rather, youth will be inspired to actively participate in their communities, ‘thinking globally, acting locally’.
Following a successful pilot in Australia this will soon be coming to the USA. Watch this space!!


The two main aims of the Youth Activation Program are to:

·        Inspire youth to take action with our interactive youth-focused version of the 1.4 Billion Reasons presentation.
·        Connect inspired youth who want to create change with existing resources, programs, people and organisations that are already creating change.


We Have Three Program Options: 

  • Inspire – an introduction to global poverty and how to take action
  • Learn More – a follow-on series of in-depth presentations on global justice and awareness
  • Create Change – guiding youth in taking their own action
 We offer three different options

Securing a Presentation

·        Enquire with other schools and youth organisations in the area for interest and work together
·        Secure an audience, date, time and location for us to visit
·        Organise funding for visit (will be cheaper if other schools and groups in the area are involved)
·        Organise logistics for visit – transport, venue, equipment
·        Wait to be inspired and create change in the world


·        Stimulate greaterglobal and social awareness, compassion and justice from firsthand experiences of presenters
·        Provoke reflection on youth’s role in society and how they can make a difference
·        Develop a global conscience as youth enter into adulthood, wanting to help both locally and globally
·        Inspire action, enriching communities with more youth and community participation
·        The program is not linear; it should follow the needs and interests of the youth, school or community on any global or social justice topic
