Martha LlanO, COLOMBIA

Seven thousand feet above sea level in the cloud forests of Colombia, Martha Llano is raising her voice for local communities and fragile ecosystems. In a country terrorized by the drug war, where avoiding land mines and witnessing violence against women is a daily occurrence, she is bravely standing up for the land she loves.

Expertise: Environmental protection/sustainable development, indigenous and ethnic people’s displacement; violence against women, peace building in Colombia, forgiveness through writing

I want to make a network in every country and bring changes in people’s lives. The power of words is the key to shake the world.

Beatrice AchienG, UGANDA

Winning a historic tribal ruling in her village allowing women to own land was just the beginning for Beatrice Achieng. A youth leader for her community of over 700,000, Beatrice advances solutions for grassroots development, supports education for local girls, and pioneers the use of information and communication technologies to combat Uganda's HIV/AIDS crisis.

Expertise: HIV/AIDS, girls' education, youth empowerment, information and communication technologies for development


I am grateful I found not only a channel but listeners too. I will speak for change to my very last breath.

Sarvina Kang, CAMBODIA

At 10 years old, she was told she would never amount to anything more than a prostitute. Now the only literate person in an extended family of 35—Sarvina has overcome poverty to become a leader in her community and a champion of girls' education and ending sex trafficking.

Expertise: Education, girls’ empowerment, sex trafficking



I believe we can harness technology to inspire and empower women worldwide, building their inner strength with skills that will last a lifetime.
