ABOUT

"Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has."

These timeless words by Margaret Meade inform the decision to run with the vision of Children that Change the World. For us, the term "children" is inclusive of teenagers since they are daring, adventurous, innovative and curious. We are of the opinion that every child is a world changer; the only limiting factor will be the access such child has to the necessary tools and support system he or she needs to achieve this. CTCTW's goal is to make such access available to every child beginning from Ogbomoso, Nigeria to the rest of the world.

We believe in the excellent possibilities that lie in children of all ages, and we celebrate these young minds who would not allow their ages limit them from doing great things. Through various programs, we host spectacular children and ensure their recognition as the resiliently creative souls they are.

Testimonials

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I learned a lot of things today; I now know that I can think outside the box and I can change the world. I was also challenged because connecting 9 dots with only four lines was not easy, but when the instructor taught us how to do it, I was so amazed. I learned about many things; I learned what critical thinking is, about William Kamkwamba, the Wright brothers and how to rule my world, etc.
Adegoke Bernice - King Of Kings School, Ogbomoso.
CTCTW has opened me up to a new world of learning. The radio programme really shocked me with the reality that I had not been thinking as I ought to. I was motivated to start thinking beyond normal circumstances. Almost six months after I won the first ever CTCTW scholarship, I was accepted for an internship at Ennovate Lab as a fulfilment of the promise made to me by the Ennovate Lab team.

I learned that I should think outside the box because I have the ability and capacity to do so. I realized that I can solve problems and that I can be creative by looking around me.​
