#BeTheChange2015We have been delighted so far by the level and quality of responses to our #BeTheChange2015 instagram and online competition! Since the launch in August, we have received over 300 excellent photos from all over the world – showcasing positive change in areas such as education, child and maternal health, and environmental protection. We are really thrilled by what we have seen!

#BeTheChange2015 – photo of the week

This week’s photo comes from Uganda, highlighting why making sure girls can access education and higher learning is so crucial for our development as a society. For more, here is what @kyiraabo had to say:

This picture shows the change I have been longing for, seeing students being confident enough to talk about things like career choices, reproductive health, relationships and having fun while at it… In my time it was different because we were not assertive enough and we didn’t know that was a problem but with today’s education things are getting better #BeTheChange2015

We will continue to post our favourite photos as they come in each week, and select one picture each week as the “best of the bunch”. The competition will continue to run until Septemebr 23rd so you have plenty of time to get your potentially winning entry in!
