The joy of being a part of such a young, energetic, enthusiastic, hardworking and intelligent Move The World team cannot be hidden anymore.

Adjectives alone cannot describe this team of amazing young men and women whom with passion and dedication, spend time and resources designing programmes to shape our future leaders to be problem solvers. They make us realise every problem in the community has its solution within the same community.

At the heart of MTW is addressing developmental issues, and these are impacted to younger ones through the Get Global Programme which makes complex and complicated issues look simple to interact with. In MTW, problem-solving is made pragmatic as possible.

MTW believe all hands have to be on deck in achieving the SDGs. With words of encouragement and the beaming smiles on the faces on these individuals, you are assured you are capable!

Margaret Osei

Facilitator

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” 

Her Story:

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.

Benjamin Hayford Adu

Facilitator

Ben has been involved with Move the World since 2015 when we ran a collaborative Community Day with 1 Billion Africa, one of our partner organisations. Since then Ben has been involved with numerous projects for MTW and many collaborative programmes including a Young Leaders Retreat, Ammambr3, and Tech2Orphans. We are so happy to have him officially on board as a Get Global Facilitator now- here’s his story.

His story:Doing what you love doing best is one of the easiest way to achieve satisfaction and total emancipation. I have been a beneficiary of some of Move The World Training programs throughout the years and I bet you it has really impacted me positively.MTW gives you the space to be your self whiles reaching your capabilities. I had the chance to meet like-minded people who are ever ready to share, learn, play and eat with me.As a young man with the passion to transform my society and help raise peoples standard of living, Move The World was one of my major springboard to achieving that dream.Enrolling as Move The World Facilitator this year has been one of my greatest wins in 2020. It has placed me in an environment where I have discovered and recovered some of my God given potentials. It has given me the opportunity to learn more about the Sustainable Development Goals and impact it into the younger generation of the Medie Community.With the kids, the joy on their faces during class time is more than enough motivation and satisfaction.  It has not only benefited the people of Medie community but my immediate family. They are now more conscious of the SDGs and doing everything they need to do to promote it.

Hillary Nyourizie

Student

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. 

Medie International School

Partner school

Hello and Greetings from Medie International School to Move The World. My name is Maz Tanko ECOWAS. My Students call me Global Citizen. I’m here to share my experience for the past 7 months with the team of local facilitators that visited our school to train engage and interact with my students. In fact, though schools have been shut down and we are home now, I just want to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to Move the World for recognising my school, MIS.Thank God that when they first visited us, we received them I want to send this message across that if you really want your school to be dynamic, your school to develop academically, pls open, open up whenever they visit you. This group of young people are modern day scholars who no matter your position in education, when you meet them, you will love them. You will really have to humble yourself to learn a lot from them. I am a teacher, I have had the opportunity to observe, I was there with them, I see a lot of activities that have taken place. You might have heard of SDGs, Global Goals, Sustainable Development Goals. Yes! Some of us even at the tertiary level, we heard so many things about SDGs, we have been hearing them but in fact to be honest with you, we haven’t taken our time to actually sit down and then go through and begin to study these goals.Now my students rhyme with it, they understand the concept of the SDGs. They now call themselves names such as Mr. ‘No Poverty’, Good Health, Quality Education, and many others.For the past 7 months, these local Get Global facilitators who visited our schools have actually grouped these kids in sections, they visit the school every 2 weeks to train them. They engage them in interactive activities which has actually exposed these students to the outside world. They now think outside their environment, as a teacher, a lot of progress has been made, my students have learnt a lot. I must confess that Get Global has really transformed the lives of these students.The interactive activities have improved their academic performance, they report to school on time, the love and unity has actually improved, they used to fight among themselves, but the use of therapy talks, skills and techniques by these GG local facilitators have actually change the mind-sets of these students. They now do things together, they share ideas together, and you could see the happiness when they come to school.Personally, as a class teacher, it has actually helped me. These students now ask intelligent questions, they ask questions outside their environment, they ask global questions, I mean intelligent questions. I must use this opportunity, in fact on behalf of the management of MIS to thank MTW, we thank you so much for your support. I have received home activities from Lawrencia, I downloaded them, I sent them online to parents to give it to their wards and the children are busy consuming them,In fact, we can’t thank you enough, we appreciate you MTW, we hope that when school resumes, you will not forget us, you will visit us to continue with the good works you are doing. 

Meyah Preparatory

Partner School

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. 

Michael Woma

Facilitator

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.
