This initiative is our Flagship Social Enterprise through which we translate our successes and growth points to our peers who work with young people in communities that are challenged by poverty, marginalization, and violence globally. The Megaphone Consultancy is a service we provide to businesses, organizations and governments who seek expertise in designing and delivering programs that elicit and engage the authentic child and youth voice. Income generated from these consultancies go directly towards our Scholarship fund and its adminstration.
Our overall objective with this initiative to promote greater public awareness of the importance and necessity of child participation in the community. Through participation in marketing campaigns, joint decision-making with adults and/or with the lobbying of decision makers and advocacy strategies, youth can add a unique perspective with value to community conversations. To achieve the goal of increasing youth participation, we adopt a flexible multi-pronged engagement strategy that builds opportunities for children to improve the capacity and provide opportunities for meaningfully and effectively participation in decision-making. Young people are provided with the tools, skills, and platform to develop a sound understanding of their rights, and enhance their capacity to address concerns about their rights.
