Join us by sharing your stories of positive change through your social media, using #MomentOfChange. Once your Moment is shared, consider creating a Moment of Change for a child by donating to Save the Children. We work in Canada and around the world, helping children and youth create their own positive moments of change. We all have our own stories of positive change and this holiday season, we encourage you to share a moment and create a moment through a donation to Save the Children.
Share your moment of change with your community! Please post a photo that represents a positive Moment of Change in your life and tell us about it. You may wish to dedicate your Moment to someone who matters deeply to you—a friend, parent, grandparent, spouse or sibling, a teacher, neighbour, colleague or coach—the list goes on! You can post to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #MomentOfChange and it will be displayed on this page.

A Moment of Change for me happened when I realized my full potential after joining the Youth in Action program. I am 19 years old and was born in a family of 6. I dropped out of school in Standard 5 as a result of peer pressure. I joined the YIA program in 2013 and have been learning new things ever since.
Having dropped out of school, I really had limited knowledge on what was going on in my life and around community and on how I could become self-reliant. Having undergone the YIA program through the learning sessions, I finally came to transition to different pathways, which have helped me unearth the potential in me. I now know that I can achieve whatever I want in life if I put my heart into it. With the skills I have gained from the program including knowing myself, my community, how to run a business, I believe all this combined will make me into something great. With support from the program, I have opened my own shop where I sell different groceries. I was given a capital of MK40, 000 which I used to start my business after coming up with a business plan. I initially wanted to do farming; however with the current season it is not feasible. As such I have started this business as an investment so that when the season is right, I can continue with my farming idea. I have also procured one bag of fertilizer in preparation. I hope through my business I can help change my community and ensure food security for my family and community.
