Alanna helps advance the SDGs with social impact

Making mental health support accessible to all youth
Global Citizen Youth Leaders Award
Global Citizen Youth Leaders Award

Alanna Sethi was at Concord in 2019 and has just been honoured to be among the 32 recipients of the Global Citizen #YouthLeadersAward – a prize awarded to young innovators working to address the issues perpetuating extreme poverty.

This prize will help her continue her work at HOPE (Helping Our Planet Earth), a youth-led international non-profit organization making mental health support accessible to young people. HOPE is currently undergoing the charity registration process in Hong Kong and seeking pro-bono support from volunteers, in particular a pro-bono accountant. Please do reach out to Alanna if you are interested in supporting this well deserving cause.
