"Young MDG" - a website for children about the MDGs launches Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Franziska Seel, Germany May 30, 2005
Child & Youth Rights   Interviews


It is also a privilege for us winning the Childnet Academy 2005 held in Jamaica as me and two of my team members Van (USA) and Jaevion (Jamaica) were thus able to meet and talk a bit about the website.

Franziska: You briefly mentioned to me that the website is only the first part of a much bigger MDG project. What other activities are you still planning to do?

Angelicum: Yes, youngmdg.com is our first step. We have an initial funding enough to print different MDG materials, again targeted for children and young people. We are planning to have these materials distributed to those who don't have internet access and computers, in some parts of Nigeria and South Africa for example.

We're also drafting a project plan for each of the MDGs, basically to raise awareness and promote positive use of technology in trying to achieve the Goals. We will be glad to replicate what others have done in their community to promote this cause and we're hoping that our ideas too will be realized by other young people.

Franziska: Thank you Angelicum for this interview and good luck with your Young MDG project!

To find out more about the project please visit the Young MDG website.

neil jay wollman | Sep 6th, 2009
Kids Can Make A Difference (KIDS) is an innovative educational program for middle school and high school students. It helps them understand the root causes of hunger and poverty and how they as individuals can take action. KIDS has three major components: ►Teachers’ Guide: Finding Solutions To Hunger: Kids Can Make A Difference has provided over 5,000 classrooms, religious schools, after school programs and homeschoolers with tools to help young people to understand the causes of poverty and become informed and effective citizens, realizing their own capacity to change the world. Students learn about the pain of hunger; the importance of food; the inequality of its distribution; and the links between poverty, hunger, joblessness, and homelessness. They are then given the skills to take what they have learned into their communities. ►Website: The KIDS web site is rated one of the top 20 websites for educators by Educational World. The site provides news, a hunger quiz, hunger facts, suggested books, back issues of the newsletter, the table of contents, sample lessons, program notes from the teacher guide; and ►Newsletter: The three yearly issues highlight current hunger issues, showcase student initiatives, and feature teachers' experiences teaching the KIDS program and students' experiences making a difference in their community and world.
