Going Barefoot for National Volunteer Week: A Twelve Year Old in Action

Bilaal Rajan, twelve year old author, fundraiser and UNICEF Children’s Ambassador is going barefoot for National Volunteer Week to raise awareness about global child poverty. What's his goal?

“...to inspire one million children to take action and help create a more peaceful and caring world. I want kids to find their passion, get involved and make a difference in the lives of others.”

Learn more about this inspiring twelve year old, the Barefoot Campaign, or purchase his manual, Making Change: Tips from an Underage Overachiever, at www.makingchangenow.com.

You can also see a video on YouTube about this initiative from Rajan himself.

Will you join Rajan and go barefoot this week to help raise awareness for less privileged children around the world? Have other plans to celebrate National Volunteer Week? Feel free to share stories about your National Volunteer Week celebrations in the comments.

Its not only Bilaal Rajan, there are many children's in India likes Bilaal Rajan, who need better education, food and shelter to live, generally speaking, work for children that harms them or exploits them in some way (physically, mentally, morally, or by blocking access to education).Social Changes should been made..
