ARC Staff Making Change
On World Refugee Day, we launched our fourth annual Changemakers Award Competition. Changemakers is an ideas competition for our 1,600 staff around the world. We ask everyone one simple question and provide the platform for their ideas to pour in.
In one simple way, how can I make the people I serve feel more valued, joyful or powerful?
In 250 words or less, they describe a problem they’ve observed and offer an idea that they think would make change to solve that problem. Each team member can submit as many ideas as they want – the sky is the limit!
Each year, we’ve seen the competition grow. Last year over 500 ideas were submitted. And this year, we’ve set an ambitious goal for our team members to submit 1,000 ideas!
With 11 days left until the competition ends on August 1, we’ve already collected 420 ideas. They’ve come from staff members in every place ARC works, from Uganda to Myanmar, Pakistan to Rwanda. Check out the images below of some of our staff getting creative to make change…
Stay tuned over the coming months as the Changemakers fun continues.
