  • founder's note

    Dear Readers,

    Education has always been very close to my heart as I personally believed that it can uplift and empower lives. But let's be honest, most of the institution that are present today are very much systematic that sometimes you question its effectivity especially in terms of inclusivity. What about those persons with disabilities? Those who are socio-economically challenged? Not all students can grasp what is presented at schools today. That is a fact.


    But there is hope. A lot of passionate people saw these problems and right now they are willingly devoting their time to address these problems.


    In this July 2018 issue of Change Magazine, we bring you stories of amazing initiatives around the globe, fighting against all odds to make an impact not just for the many but for all. We hope you get inspired and in a way, look at education in a holistic and inclusive way.


    Lastly, thank you for your constant support with our cause at Change Mag and Diinsider. If you are not familiar with us yet, we welcome you with a tight hug! Be sure to get to know us soon! I'm telling you, we are definitely fun and inspiring to be with. ;)


    Enjoy reading!
