The Leaders Advancing Democracy Mongolia (LEAD) Program funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) recently launched a short film that tells the story of seven LEAD fellows’ passion to make the world a more inclusive and better place.
Enkhjin Selenge, a marketing specialist who is featured in the film for his work with other LEAD Fellows on a documentary examining the issue of unemployment and exclusion says, “Before participating in this program, I barely knew what social inclusion was.” The team itself was composed of leaders from deaf advocacy and LGBT rights groups, from rural as well as urban areas. Selenge says that diversity made the project better: “LEAD made me think differently. I realized we can be stronger when we’re a diverse team and include everyone.
If we want to develop our country, we have to be inclusive of everyone. There’s no other choice.” Watch the film!
