Our world is an amazing place, but it is not perfect. Every day our world and our communities face challenges and issues. Within all of us we have great potential to create positive changes in the world and in our communities.

The Make It Happen! project will help you to use the strengths and skills you have built up during the workshops, online and in the handbook to make your community a better, kinder and happier place.

Throughout the Taqaddam programme, you will work with your team school to start developing your ideas and planning how you will complete your social action project. Some of the online missions and tasks within this handbook will help you along the way!
