Achieve 

anything 

program

The ‘Achieve anything program’ will see the world’s youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate and co-founder of Malala Fund, Malala Yousafzai inspire children and young people with hearing loss to share their personal stories of achievement. 

 

Stories have the power to change the world and we hope that Malala’s involvement in this program will help motivate people to act and remove hearing loss as a barrier to education and life's opportunities.

The ‘Achieve anything program’ will also highlight real world experiences of children and young people with hearing loss and demonstrate the importance of early access to hearing healthcare and support.

Achieve anything: 

Inspiring stories

We want to hear from you or your child if you have hearing loss, are school aged (5-25 years old) and have an inspiring personal story of achievement, no matter how big or small. We are collecting stories from young people with hearing loss from around the world for 12 months, commencing September 2021.

Why share your story?

Stories have the power to change the world. Your story of personal achievement and all of the potential barriers you’ve overcome throughout your life may inspire and help other young people with hearing loss to realise their full potential. Your story will help promote the importance of having equal rights to a quality education and early access to hearing healthcare and support and you will be recognised for sharing your achievements. Be an advocate for change - share your story today.
