So you think you know the answer?

On Thursday 30 July, we're celebrating International Youth Day by hosting a pub quiz that will shine a light on the fantastic contribution of young people to international development. Get the date in your diary and join us for an evening to remember, hosted by our very own Lucy Hutchinson.

So much of the impact we have in fragile states is only possible because of the incredible work of young volunteers.

“Young Progressio ICS volunteers have given us a presence in the community. Before, we didn't have the capacity or ideas to engage young people through schools. With the ICS volunteers, we are now working in 20 schools and delivering life-saving information and training to a much wider audience at a key stage in their lives.”

These comments about the impact of young Progressio ICS volunteers came from Dominic Nyirongo, Executive Director of our partner organisation, Ungweru in Malawi. This is just one story of how young people are driving development forward and one example of why we want to celebrate their contribution. You can read the full story here.

The proceeds from So you think you know the answer? will support young volunteers and skilled development workers to keep on impacting communities around the world. If you want to ensure more people can be supported through young volunteers, and have a fun evening that will test you in more ways than you think, book your ticket to So you think you know the answer? now and join us at Balham Bowls Club, 7-9 Ramsden Road, SW12 8QX on Thursday 30 July from 7PM.
