WHAT BRIDGES NOT BARRIERS STANDS FOR
Empowering young people around the World to make a better tomorrow through mutual understanding……Because there is more that binds us together than sets us apart.Millions of young people have been displaced by conflict around the World or live in challenging circumstances.
Over the past two years I have visited Gaza, the West Bank and Jordan, currently home to 2m registered refugees and countless more who are unregistered and was struck by the resilience of people under such extreme conditions, particularly young people.
I have travelled to Africa, Asia and South America and met people in many different situations. Their stories are all different, the issues they face rarely the same. But the world over young people have the same hope for themselves and the future: to make a better world.And it has never been easier for them to communicate with each other across borders, to build bridges and break down barriers.
