Youth + YouTube + Facebook = Social Change at Youth Tech Festival

All members of a third team busy on Facebook, inviting friends to join their newly-created group to fight child abuse. More sights such as these were part of the Youth Tech Festival in Jordan where over 90 young women and men (with a 9 all-female technology training team) gathered to acquire hands-on skills to utilize emerging technologies to advocate for social change.
