Grace: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! It’s wonderful to be here. Kids4Kids envisions a future where all youths are all empowered with the belief that they are never too young to change the world. By creating a culture of community, responsibility, and mutual respect, Kids4Kids creates a journey for young people to become socially responsible individuals and active agents of change. Through our network, young people can also build confidence, discover their inner powers, and find ways to use their strengths to positively impact the community.
Reese: Global education, as a system, hasn't fundamentally changed in the last 100 years. At ISSIA, we aim to provide a different kind of education—we cultivate global citizenship and empower young changemakers through peer-to-peer and project-based learning. We are the go-to hub for all things social issues with 250 members and counting across more than 60 schools. Since 2019, with a focus on SDGs 4 and 17, we've established more than 30 projects as the largest youth-led organization in Hong Kong. Projects include our flagship ISSIA Magazine, docu series on LGBTQIA+ rights, podcasts, the ISSIA Model United Nations (ISSIAMUN), and our Youth NGOs Conferences—which has connected more than 20 youth-led NGOs through up-skilling workshops and panels.
