How do you motivate the youths living in developing world for the better future?

Being considered about our world and society I pay my attention to how young people with different opportunities act in the world, what are their goals, achievements. I understand, a lot of people have desire to do something, make a change, action, however, they think they do not worth it, these opportunities are not for them and etc. My goal is to insure people they need to try themselves, to explain those are only stereotypes, I give them examples from my experience. I give some tips for application. Sometimes it happens when people ‘fail’ or something goes wrong in their experience. In this case, I try to enlighten it as a new opportunity, new chance.

I am doing my projects in EYP Ukraine where my team gives opportunities to high school students to try themselves as a trainer for peers in an interactive lesson.I know, the problem is not only involvement but also a knowledge. So I am doing my best to provide access to this knowledge. I organized an English Club in my community, did a Help&Travel Tour, I went to small cities and villages to give the youth information about online learning, need of it, their future opportunities.
