Mr. Annan is the former secretary general of the United Nations, member of the Elders and winner of the Nobel peace prize. The Global Shapers not only presented the WakaWaka, they also shared their thoughts on the Solar for Philippines campaign.
Mr. Annan: “The Solar for Philippines campaign brings light into darkness in a sustainable and energy efficient way. It will hopefully soon be available to Typhoon victims in Philippines. It may well prove to be a viable solution to people facing similar hardships in other places around the world.”
The Global Shapers Community, an initiative by the World Economic Forum, is a network of hubs developed and led by young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities.
The WakaWaka Foundation is very thankful to Mr. Annan, his team at the Annan Foundation and the Global Shapers for their endorsement!
