Go Back

It’s youth reporter Getrude Clement again, doing great work representing youth from Tanzania and across Africa. This time she presented at the  Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) conference in Stockholm, Sweden at the beginning of September.

Getrude is a 17-year-old youth reporter with Mwanza Youth and Children’s Network (MYCN) and part of the Young Reporters Network in Tanzania. She and her fellow youth reporters host weekly radio shows, talking about various issues that affect young people in her community, including sexual reproductive health, human rights, education and the effects of climate change on children in her hometown, Mwanza. She was invited to speak about access to clean water at a fundraising event in Sweden, which formed part of the global World Water Week conference.

Thanks to the Operakällaren Foundation, and UNICEF Tanzania for supporting Gertrude to speak in Sweden on behalf of #everychild in Tanzania. We are proud of you Gertrude for being a change-maker for children!
