Did you know that 65 million girls around the world are not in school? A growing cadre of young people just like you are making a difference for those girls.
Young people have an essential role to play in building a better world. Active participation in SSO’s YA program gives them new confidence that their work matters, that they, too, can change the world.
“I’m Ruby, but I’m also Sonia. You’re all you, but you’re also Sonia. And that means that we all have the power to make an impact on this world.” – Ruby Writer
Their contributions influence others. Their compassion inspires. They learn from each other, and we learn from them!
It could be said that Sonia Shah herself was a Young Ambassador herself, a citizen diplomat who set out to build a girls’ school in her maternal ancestral village of Kangra. Her efforts planted the seed. Her story continues to inspire.
Diverse group of girls and boys ranging from primary school to university students have joined the program.
Sonia Shah Organization’s (SSO) Young Ambassadors consistently surprise and motivate us with their creative, determined and meaningful efforts to Be the Change.

I am Sonia Too
By Momina Khan
Sonia Shah Young Ambasadors
I rise to all occasions with confidence and grace
Ill meet my fears with courage
There’s no challenge I wont face
If ever I should fall, I will always bounce right back
I’ll strive to always do my best and learn the skills I lack
I’ll always be accountable, and true to what’s within
Ill remember my humility, in every loss and every win
I’ll show my dedication in everything I do
I embody all these values, because…
I am Sonia too
