Published on 01/10/2001
This edition of real leaders shines the spotlight on youth. Founders of vastly different initiatives, Simon Jackson, Ryan Hreljac and Rahul Raj demonstrate that a powerful vision can go a long way. Simon Jackson is a 19-year-old who has dedicated himself to the preservation of the spirit bear, a species living on the West Coast that is threatened with extinction. Ten-year-old Ryan Hreljac raises money to build wells in Africa so that communities can access safe drinking water. And Rahul Raj is encouraging university students to help tackle poverty. Founded by Raj, Meal Exchange uses points which students donate from their meal cards to buy food for local food banks.
