A chance encounter and offer to help a passer-by in Congo led to life-changing consequences – for everyone involved. That meeting led to the healing of thousands through eye surgery and treatment, improving lives and health outcomes for themselves, their families and communities. Showing up starts with looking up, seeing others' needs and opening our hearts. Many parents and society treat today's children as passive actors in social change. At best, unengaged, at worst, powerless victims. In this talk, we'll hear ideas on how parents, educators and the community can support and empower children to impact social change in the world.
