"We believe we can change society by influencing the values, attitudes and aspirations of the next generation of leaders."
Our mission is inspired by a group of young people from West London who established an Emerging Leaders Programme in 2007 to help themselves, and their peers, discover and live out their potential.

Follow the adventures of 7 young leaders from the UK during their inter-cultural leadership challenge in South Africa.
Name: Msizi Gumede
Date of Birth: 25 April 1972
Msizi joined the first life skills course in KwaNyuswa in August 2002. He was a drug dealer in the area until his life was changed through World Changers. Msizi was also selected to take the first leadership course given in March 2003 and was chosen "Best Overall Student" among the 25 students.
Msizi has come a long way from dealing drugs on the streets to dealing a different drug today - one containing a message of hope, selfless service, and people empowerment - to thousands of young people.

South Africa Challenge 2012
South Africa Challenge 2012 is a "World Changers" project that was piloted to help some of today's emerging young leaders understand some of the world's biggest social issues, and further develop themselves, through a cross cultural experience. A group of seven UK based students and mentors travelled to Durban to participate in a demanding two week programme filled with community building activities, educational talks and personal reflections along the way.
