Best of Youth Mobilizers in 2019

What an exciting year! CanWaCH had the opportunity to work with young people at Women Deliver 2019 in the spring and the Summit for Canada’s Global Leadership in the fall. CanWaCH has been inspired by the young people that our team had the pleasure to meet and learn from throughout the year. At CanWaCH, we believe that young people are not only the leaders of tomorrow but the leaders of today. So, our team is proud to introduce a NEW section on our website inspired by youth FOR youth! On behalf of everyone at CanWaCH, we wish you and yours a very happy holiday season. See you in 2020!

We want your insights!

We are putting youth at the forefront of global health, development and gender equality… Let us know what you think Canada’s international development community should make a priority in 2020!
