My story

[p]In 2017 I was kindly invited to take part in Strive Morocco - if I'm totally honest, I didn't really know what I was signing up for, and I ended up having the most incredible experience with some amazing people from all around the world, all striving for BIG CHANGE (more on the mission below). I enjoyed it so much, I've signed up again to Strive in Corsica. I'd love it if friends and family can generously support and help us achieve our goal!![/p][p]**********************[/p][p]The 2018 Virgin STRIVE Challenge aims to raise [b]£1 million [/b]to support up to [b]10 new projects [/b]that[/p][p] are creating big change in how we [b]set young people up to thrive in life, not just in exams[/b].[/p][p] [b]Where does the money go? [/b]ALL of the money raised from STRIVE is used to support early-stage ideas[/p][p]that address unacceptable issues facing young people.[/p][p][b]What impact does it have? [/b]Past projects supported by STRIVE (like [b][i]Frontline[/i][/b], [b][i]Voice 21 [/i][/b]and [b][i]NCS[/i][/b]) have[/p][p]gone on to receive millions in government and other funding - scaling nationally, influencing policy[/p][p]and changing the way things are done. Your efforts really do make a big difference![/p][p][b]Why focus on empowering change? [/b]We believe prevention is better than treating symptoms - it’s[/p][p]easier to build stronger children than it is to fix broken adults.[/p][p][b]Why early-stage projects? [/b]Unless we support innovation, change will not happen. There is very little[/p][p]funding for early-stage ideas with big ambition for long term system change, especially before they[/p][p]have proved their impact.[/p][p][br][/p]
