Usman Ali

Two Halifax, UK teenagers have been chosen to report on key global issues to their peers for the next six months, as part of a youth reporters project.

Calderdale Youth Parliament member Usman Ali, 16, and Denise Donnelly, who is a student at Calderdale College, have been selected alongside 25 other young people from all over the UK to bring a local perspective on key global issues for the next six months, thanks to funding from UKaid from the Department for International Development (DFID).

Usman said: “With the current global economic crisis, the spotlight can effortlessly be taken off international development. However, I believe as a young person I can raise awareness across the UK as to why international development is vital.”

Denise added: “It will give me an insight into a possible career in journalism and give me the chance to have my voice heard, as well as giving other young people a chance to air their views.”
