I Dare You
The most powerful force of change on the planet is a girl. (Thanks to the input from my friends Judith, Anne and Billy who challenged this statement. I would reword it replacing ‘force of change’ with ‘force for change’. What do you think? Does it make a difference?)

Hi matt, loved this video on ‘power for change being a girl’ and with a youth population buldge and high unemployment rate in East Timor it makes me happy that so many australians are volunteering and working for better education and health for girls and young women there. good luck for your first run in sydney, will be there if I can..

Thanks Luke- really admire the commitment and work you and your team have shown over the years in Timor Leste through lifelovehealth.com
I agree that while there are many problems facing girls and young women, through the work of many people life yourself working and volunteering to make a difference a tipping point of change might be reached. Hopefully strong enough to overcome the obstacles as well to create new societal and cultural norms.
