SNV USA Launches Youth Speak Up On Poverty Contest

Prominent global leaders have shared inspirational quotes through the SNV USA Youth Speak Up on Poverty contest including President Bill Clinton; Israeli President Shimon Peres; His Holiness the Dalai Lama; Chief Muslim Imam of India Umer Ahmed Ilyasi; Governor Tom Ridge; Grammy-award winning singer and song writer Angelique Kidjo, and American actress, singer and activist Rosario Dawson

"Every child is born the same way, not as a conflict of color but as a human being with a role to play on the planet," says Angelique Kidjo.  These global leaders and cultural icons, Ghosh observed, want to inspire and engage young people today because they will be tomorrow's change-makers.

The rationale for this contest is embedded in a quote by Dr. King: " If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective." This concept is at the core of SNV's mission to break the cycle of poverty.
