Letters For Change is set up by a 12-year-old and is completely run by students. So it is essentially an initiative by children for children.
What change does Letters for Change bring?
Letters For Change brings two kinds of changes.
External – Where the letters received inspire change in society and systems around us.
Internal – Where the children become confident in speaking up on issues that they think can change their lives.
Why should a child write a letter?
Children are people too. And they get affected by things around them. We encourage them to share their concerns and ideas through letters.
Why can’t adults write to Letters for Change?
Unlike children, adults have certain rights through which they can speak up for themselves. In most cases, the decisions and choices that have to be made by children are made by adults on their behalf. Hence, LFC focuses on children to not only help them speak up but also enhance a sense of confidence in them.
