Aiden Howe - 2022-23 ITSF YAC Member

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia


I'm Aiden Howe, a Year 12 student studying at Chinese International School. I initially became interested in social issues in Year 10, when I first created Helpers for Helpers, a social organization focused on fighting domestic worker issues through outreach and events as well as sharing stories. After joining the first cohort of the UNITAR YAAPP programme and having the ability to connect with other youth, I co-created the Coalition for Minority Empowerment alongside fellow minority empowerment youth organizations Second Strings, Coexist, and KickAction, hosting the first ever youth-led UN event in Hong Kong. Currently, my focus has been on providing even more free opportunities for domestic workers to learn new skills and selfempower, such as our Mixing Bowl cooking classes and partnering with NGOs like SPLASH Foundation to host swimming lessons, and working in improving interconnectivity and collaboration amongst youth organizations on a local scale. My position on the ITSF YAC helps me to broaden my impact through reaching a greater audience and getting support for running events.
