Girl Changemakers who will be leading the Social Media Takeovers are well known in their home states for their determination, strength, leadership, passion and community service. As highly effective influencers and mobilisers, they have not only overcome difficult circumstances in their own lives but also brought about development in their communities. A number of them have been recognised by the government and media for their immense contributions. Starting at an early age in Plan India’s programmes, the girls have progressed through Child Clubs, Adolescent Girls’ Groups, thematic working groups and technical and governance committees, to be part of State and National Youth Advisory Panels and Children’s Assemblies among others. As experienced and long-serving community leaders, they inform our programmatic decision making, implementation, monitoring and advocacy at every level.
