Calvin Dube, 24 – Zimbabwe

“If the youth want a better world, it’s their responsibility to make some changes.

It’s not enough to sit back and complain about the state of the world. As young people, if we want change, we must take action. That’s why when I came to Britain from Zimbabwe I got involved with some like-minded students to set up “Youth for Change”.

We are a global youth-led coalition of young activists. We work in partnership with organisations and governments to create positive change for girls, boys, young women and young men. We launched in 2014 and currently have youth teams based in the UK, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. We believe that young people really have their part to play: they have unique insights, experiences and recommendations that can make decision making more effective. So “Youth for Change’s mission is to ensure young people are influencing policy decisions that affect their lives and help to realise their rights.

It’s true to say that everything I do with Youth for Change is informed by my happy childhood in Zimbabwe, where my parents and grandparents gave me a strong sense of what’s right and wrong. My country has a very rich culture and I like to bring a taste of my Zimbabwean roots to whatever I do. When I can, I send money home to my younger brother in Zimbabwe, who is saving to come over to study politics in the UK. He’s sure to be another recruit for Youth for Change.”
