Power to the Children Screening and Q&A Fundraiser

November 20, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm


Imagine a global grassroots movement of tens of thousands of children, uniting worldwide to promote children’s rights and the UN Sustainable Development goals. This movement exists, and is called Children’s Parliaments.

At this event we will screen “Power to the Children,” a documentary following young people who are involved in the Children’s Parliaments movement in India, which details their struggles and accomplishments. Swarnalakshmi Ravi, who is featured in the film, will join us afterward for a Q&A. Two current youth members of the Provisional World Children’s Parliament will also attend as panelists.

We are raising funds to start a new chapter of the Provisional World Children’s Parliament in Kenya. The children live in high poverty conditions and will decide on a new community project together that is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Introductions to speakers, welcome to attendees – 10 min
Screening of the movie Power to the Children – 90 min
Q&A with Swarnalakshmi Ravi, former national prime minister of India’s Children’s Parliament and two Provisional World Children’s Parliament members (50 min)
This will be a dual in-person and online live event.
