About the QCT Network
The QCT Network is a community of 850+ mission aligned changemakers between the ages of 18-35 years who are leading positive social change in the Commonwealth. It is a platform to build and foster worldwide connections among powerful young leaders to amplify their learning and impact. The QCT Network has representation from across the Commonwealth countries and projects contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
My experience with the QCT Network Hub has been enriching, as I had the opportunity to apply and become a thematic lead for Inclusion. QCT also provides a monthly newsletter and an events calendar, where one can remotely have access to some incredible opportunities, alongside being a part of a thriving community of social impact leaders.
I joined the QCT Network Hub in September 2020. Connecting with persons around my age who are passionate about creating a better world has been very encouraging. I can’t wait to see the fruits of our labour.
The QCT Network is a beautiful place to be. I enjoy the cross-country exposure it gives, in terms of the opportunity to meet with fellow network members from diverse cultural backgrounds as well as the different courses, roles and events that are offered to members from time to time. As a Thematic Lead, QCT has enabled me to connect more directly with amazing young leaders and the fantastic work they are all doing across the Commonwealth. The QCT Network is a big family.
I applied to be a part of the QCT Network with the hope that I would get to learn a lot from all the organizations based in different countries. And true enough, after I was chosen as a thematic lead for Health, I got to know about the different contributions, achievements and way forward of different QCT members. It inspired me and motivated me and helped me think outside the box and move toward solutions.
I joined QCT as a young leader who is interested in expanding my network and community. A few months into the network I became a thematic lead. It has been an amazing experience for me, having to organize events, meet people, support programs in different communities. Above all, it has offered me the opportunity to learn and grow.
The QCT Network allows us to pick our experiences and creativity and transform these into appreciable solutions for human impact. We meet fellow young persons who share the same vision despite our geographical and cultural differences, and we share knowledge, expertise and implement together events that strengthen our contribution to developmental discourse. The Network has given me the platform to, together with fellow members, push the global education agenda & employability of young persons across the world.
I joined the QCT Network in 2019 after being awarded a scholarship which gave me the opportunity to attend the 10th annual One Young World summit in London alongside 52 other outstanding young leaders from every country in the Commonwealth. Being a recipient of the QCT scholarship made a significant change in me. Today I feel well equipped and empowered to be the change I want to see in my community, country and world at large. Being a QCT Network member has also helped me to build powerful connections and made lifelong friendships, many of whom I have collaborated with on projects across the Commonwealth. I have also had access to world class mentorship and resources which have greatly improved my leadership and problem-solving skills. QCT has given me the push and motivation I need to move forward with a positive attitude. I cannot afford to do little after such an eye-opening opportunity, for which I am very grateful.
The QCT Network has helped me to unleash my leadership capabilities through the thematic leadership position as well as leadership development resources available through the network. I have also been able to cooperate with other network members to perform impactful initiatives in Tanzania.
