WORLD VISION’S YOUTH FOR CHANGE CONFERENCE: KIDS NEXT DOOR 

Did you know that Asia is home to 64% of the 563 million urban slum population in the world?

These people have no choice but to live in overcrowded quarters contaminated with waste. Many of their children do not go to school. Instead, they work to support their families.

These are our neighbours, who live just next door to us under unimaginable conditions. Their children and youth struggle with the “urban paradox” where proximity to services and necessities does not equate access to them. The urban poor remains excluded from the benefits of urbanisation, suffering more severe deprivation than their rural peers. 

At this year’s Youth for Change Conference, World Vision has teamed up with Youth Corps Singapore (Youth Expedition Project) to bring a unique virtual initiative for us to get to know our peers next door and empower them to have a better chance at life:

  • Get up close and personal with World Vision’s urban programming experts
  • Deep dive into how COVID-19 has shaped development work
  • Forge friendships with youth from the Philippines and Vietnam
  • Hack solutions to real challenges as part of your YEP-GO projects

This is the first of a three-part series to kickstart your own YP-GO project. For more information, click here or visit World Vision’s official Instagram account.

Time: Day 1, 9am-12pm

             Day 3, 9am-12pm
