The Changemakers Program

The Changemakers Program is a transformative initiative designed to empower and equip youth from Kenya, Peru and Switzerland with the transferable skills and knowledge to drive positive change in their communities. 🌱 This is a program designed with and for Youth.


Our program’s mission is to guide and support a cohort of 31 pre-selected Changemakers while fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment. By co-creating a 6-month long program alongside young participants, the program creators and designers Wyss Academy for Nature, Goodwall and Emzingo ensure that the curriculum is relevant, engaging and tailored to meet their needs. 🌎


Together we strive to cultivate a community of driven individuals passionate about positively impacting and driving sustainable development in their respective communities. 🚀
