GAME Joins India’s #YoungWarrior Movement Against COVID-19
News Desk, News Nation 360 : Global Alliance for Mass Entrepreneurship (GAME) announced its support as Coalition Partner to the nationwide #YoungWarrior movement, initiated by YuWaah and UNICEF. It joins over 1500 coalition partners across Government, Civil Society, UN Agencies and Private Sector to enable the youth of India to address the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. For this, the young warriors will execute a series of easy and real-life tasks, earning a certificate of participation by UNICEF for their actions. These tasks will be hosted on online and offline platforms in 10 regional languages. Some of these tasks are: ‘Fake news police’: train in myth-busting tools to detect myths/falsehood/misinformation; ‘Vaccine buddy’: to encourage registration for vaccination and ‘Tension buster’: to enable peer-to-peer mental health support by young people. Pledging his support to the initiative, M. Srinivas Rao, CEO of GAME said that they are delighted to be a coalition partner to the nationwide #YoungWarrior movement, initiated by YuWaah and UNICEF. At GAME, they help build entrepreneurs and that journey starts with being leaders who are themselves the change a society seeks. These young COVID warriors are rising up to the challenge and GAME will help mobilise these young leaders to lead, follow and address India’s ongoing COVID crisis. They are inspired to contribute towards the #YoungWarrior movement by invigorating their entrepreneurial networks across various states in India. The #YoungWarrior Movement is being led by India’s young people between the age of 10-30. It will see them mobilize and take action by learning new skills and be armed with the right protocols, information to ensure COVID Appropriate Behaviours, dispel vaccine hesitancy, enable peer-to-peer mental health support and much more. Towards these efforts, GAME will enable the young warriors with supporting amplification of the initiative, extend relevant resources available across the Alliance and strategic support for the overall mission.
