Youth show the advocacy toolkit (c) A world at school

This photo was taken last April in Washington, DC, when young education advocates launched the Youth Advocacy Toolkit: The Education We Want

Youth are at the forefront of the campaign to get every child into school and learning. The toolkit can be used by anyone who believes passionately in the power of education and in the right for all children to get a good quality education, no matter where they are and what the circumstances. 

The toolkit has three main sections (Understand it, Plan it, Do it), illustrated stories showing how young advocates faced adversity to improve the lives of people in their communities, and easy-to-use tools to research and analyze issues, find solutions and monitor success of advocacy campaigns.

Pass it on and use it!
