Universal Children's Day Series - Children as Leaders and Partners in COVID-19: A Teen Takes the Lead in Gaza

Although the limitations of promoting children’s participation during COVID-19 are strong, child-led and child-centric initiatives have emerged as the pandemic has spread around the world. To highlight some of the creative examples, the CPC Learning Network launched the Spotlight Series: Children as Leaders and Partners in COVID-19.

The first video in this series spotlights a 16-year-old teen from Gaza who designed a phone application on her own. She provides us with reflections about how organizations could partner with young leaders like herself.
