Lessons from Kenya further inspire YouthSpark challenge winners to change the world

In July, Microsoft YouthSpark announced the winners of its Challenge for Change contest: Adam Dunn, Brian Hickey, Sneha Jayaprakash, Christina Ong and Meghan Shea. These five young adults had standout ideas for sparking change in their communities or around the world. As part of their prize package, they won $2,500 to help fund their project ideas and a volunteer trip to Kenya as YouthSpark Ambassadors.

The quintet just wrapped up their trip to Kenya, where they helped build a school and learned about the local traditions, agriculture and economy.

The Microsoft Citizenship team asked each YouthSpark Ambassador to share “how their perspective on social entrepreneurship and youth leadership has been shaped and strengthened by what they’ve learned and experienced in Kenya,” including how this knowledge will shape their individual social good projects.

Read their stories in this post on the Microsoft Citizenship Blog.
