Children are the force to be reckoned with as they hold the power to change the world they want to live in. It’s has been less than a year since Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun (PKK Tuanku Bainun) started the Children Can Change The World Series in order to give these children a platform to not only share their gracious heart with the world but also adapt skills that will make them better thus allow them to change their environment to make it a better place to live in. Thus the Young Changemaker 2015 is initiated as a movement to increase awareness and to stimulate interest in the strategic value of exemplary young people doing good.
Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun together with the English division of Co-curricular and Arts Department of the Ministry of Education, Pertubuhan Pembangunan Kendiri Wanita dan Gadis (WOMEN:girls), UNICEF and DiGi Telecommunications Berhad, kicked off the search for these real children with real stories in September with schools nationwide. From the two months search, the organising committee received about 70 submissions of inspiring and endearing stories and took two rounds to shortlist 10 finalists.
