We have various ways in which we monitor and evaluate the impact of our programmes. For more on our M&E processes and Global Citizenship competency framework, click here. This page is our Impact Storybook, a way to bring to life the impact of our work on children, facilitators, schools and communities.
A 12 year old boy at Medie International School, who first learnt of the SDG’s through the Get Global Programme. He enjoyed learning about SDG 1 – No Poverty and declared to his class that he now wanted to be referred to as “Mr No Poverty” because he pledged to work hard to become an entrepreneur so that he as a business owner could employ people with fair wages from his community and alleviate them from poverty.
A charity organisation that turns the youth into global thinkers is where I always want to be and that is why Move The World will always be my home forever. Being a part of addressing the global challenges we are facing now has a great impact on me and my community as a whole! It’s been positive and fun since we started our first Get Global facilitation program. A 6 months program for students age 9 – 11 years who are being educated about the first 6 sustainable development goals through creative projects and activities. I like the fact that I’ve built a whole family out of this Get Global programme, amazing people that I’ve met, some I have never seen before but now we are like close friends, we are like family and anytime we see each other I always like that family bond and that is one thing I’ve picked out of this whole program as a global citizen.Get Global has impacted so many lives especially mine if I should speak from my personal point of view. It has given me an avenue to have an impact in children’s lives.Every time I pick up the Get Global curriculum to read and prepare for my facilitation, I feel empowered to change society.Also, I believe that the earth is not ours; it is a treasure we hold in trust for future generations. That is why one kid in a classroom or a corner somewhere would look at me and might also want to make a change in the future as I am doing now, which will be an impact created as global citizens.
Time as a facilitator
A private preparatory school set up to provide access to education for youth in who were not attending school. It currently has 150 students. The school has a creative and visually stimulating environment, however, lacks supplies and access to quality teachers and relies on external funding for continued operations. Move The World partnered with Mayeh to deliver Get Global and we have seen great results. Students are more engaged and actively taking responsibility for their surrounding area and fellow students. The activities they are introduced to, they are replicating in their break times, and they have been inspired through this programme to start a school vegetable garden as part of their pledge for sustainability and SDG 2: Zero Hunger.
A 26 year old woman from Medie and has worked as a Get Global facilitator for 1 year. She spoke of the programme: “being a facilitator, I have been enlightened and informed through training on how change can be created. I feel a part of effecting real change in the theme of SDG 4; Quality Education. This process has been an experience of knowledge sharing and learning, facilitating and impacting children to believe they can make a difference. It has also provided me a friendship group and regular income which I am saving to go to university”
Growing up as a child in my community, I realised there were a lot of diverse issues surrounding us. As a child, I believed that everything that I saw, was what should happen. Knowing that as a child, I also felt everything was static and couldn’t be changed; things like cultural norms, moral norms and traditional practices.On my journey as I became a young woman, joining groups and making decisions to solve issues, has been my main aim. How to interact and impact change has been recognized and been adopted which has changed my perception and the way I think.Today, being a Get Global facilitator, training and imparting skills and knowledge into the youth to understand what society, culture and government talks about change or development. I have been enlightened and informed through training; on how change can be created. The sustainable development goals have always mentioned Agenda 2030, outlining 17 goals. Equally, it talks about the thematic areas where change can be made, which all is connected to Goal 4, Quality Education.Walking through this process, delivering my first Get Global Programme has been an experience and knowledge sharing. Facilitating and impacting the youth to make a change story today and tomorrow in my life and other people’s lives. It has been a great journey and I must say an informed and impactful journey.
