Young Enough to Change the World
Stories of Kids and Teens Who Turned Their Dreams Into Action
The 15 stories of young people from around the world described in Young Enough to Change the World are proof that kids and teens today want to make a difference! Each of them has already made a significant contribution to the lives of others. And, most of their projects are still going strong.
These young people began with a dream that grew and gained momentum and support in spite of a small beginning. The key to their success has been their heartfelt passion and determination. These boys and girls, young men and women, possess the qualities of heroes and heroines—empathy, self-sacrifice, service, persistence, perseverance and commitment. Moreover, they are not content to battle singlehandedly the misfortune and sorrow they see around them. They want to enroll an army of courageous others, as determined as they are, to join them in the work of addressing human suffering and inequality. They want many more, the young as well as the old, to help bring about a healthier, more peaceful, more just, world for all of us. Their commitments and results will inspire readers everywhere, and encourage us all in knowing that the future of humanity is in busy, dedicated hands.
