Clarkson Secondary School Student, Estelle Ah-Kiow, has been chosen as one of five 2012 OCIC Global Changemaker Award recipients.
The purpose of the Global Changemaker Awards is to increase awareness of the roles that young Canadians play in international cooperation in order to inspire youth and the broader Canadian public to become more engaged and active in local and global issues. This year, the award recognizes the work and dedication young people in the province are doing to empower women and girls either locally or globally.
As part of International Development Week 2012 (February 5-11, 2012), OCIC, a network of Ontario-based international development and global education organizations and individuals working globally for social justice, will be honouring the work of five young “Global Changemakers” – including Estelle - for their work to promote gender equality in their communities and around the world.
