On January 1st 2018, the Danish Prime Minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, opened his new years speech by talking about his visit with Youth For Change Bangladesh members Maisha and Farjana. The girls were invited to meet the Prime Minister in October 2017 as part of International Day of the Girl and clearly left a positive impact!
It's a great achievement for the girls' work in advocating for girls rights and ending child marriage to be recognised on such a large scale and shows the great impact Youth For Change and young people are making in influencing global leaders to instigate change. What a great way to start 2018. Well done girls!
