We Create Change is an immersive transformational leadership program that equips emerging changemakers with skills for digital campaigning. The program aims to build a community of advocacy champions in Kenya. This program is organised by Change.org as part of the mission to empower the most marginalised groups in society, and aims to support youth to identify their purpose and
agency and develop their digital campaigning expertise.

We Create Change is the successor to She Creates Change, which was launched in India in 2017 and has trained over 300 women across India, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Columbia and has had a transformational impact on building movements and driving systems change. Our program alumnus have won 50 policy level changes, mobilizing over 12 million signatures as public support.
