An inclusive society is where everyone, regardless of their race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability, or socioeconomic status, is valued, respected, and treated equally. It is a society that promotes diversity, equity, and recognizes every individual’s unique contribution and perspective.
Creating an inclusive society requires the commitment and effort of every member of the community. It involves breaking down barriers and addressing systemic inequalities that prevent certain groups from fully participating and thriving in society. It also involves promoting and celebrating diversity, and creating spaces where everyone feels welcomed and included.
One way to promote an inclusive society is through education and awareness. This includes educating ourselves and others about different cultures, perspectives, and experiences, and challenging our own biases and assumptions. It also includes advocating for policies and practices that promote diversity and equity, such as affirmative action and non-discrimination laws.
In an inclusive society, everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential and contribute to the greater good. It is a society that recognizes and celebrates the diversity and uniqueness of every individual, and promotes equality, justice, and respect for all.
The Changemakers Fellowship classes exuded an electrifying energy that was off the charts.
During last Fellows’ training, Rita Ezenwa-Okoro took the stage and captivated the participants with her insightful session on “Financing your Project and Grant Writing.”
Recognizing the pivotal role of project financing in implementation and scaling, Rita dove deep into the intricacies of crafting compelling pitches and securing funding for their organizations. Her teachings revolved around the “Why,” “What,” and “How” of presenting their work to potential funders, emphasizing the significance of tailoring their message to align with the funders’ missions and values. Moreover, she stressed the importance of preparing the necessary documents required for funding applications.
The class was filled with lots of fun, and the highlight was presenting the third book to Kehinde, who beat the others to clinch it.
The class of the Changemakers Fellowship left an indelible mark on everyone present, reigniting their passion and determination to make a positive impact – By Youth Hub!
