On March 27th, we were honored to attend a special screening of The Revolutionary Optimists at UNICEF Headquarters in New York. Amlan Ganguly, Shikha Patra, and Salim Shekh traveled from India and joined in a panel discussion with UNICEF leadership, staff, and the filmmakers. Salim and Shikha eloquently described the work they have been doing in their community, and how the use of technology and the new Map Your World platform is helping them increase polio vaccination rates and obtain clean water.
The moderator, Ahmed Shihab-Eldin, was so inspired by these young change-makers, that he held a special interview on Huff Post Live the following day. Watch this interview to see a more in depth description of the impact these youth have made in their community.
