In one Bangladeshi neighbourhood, children are being taught the skills to tell their stories to share with a society that often ignores them.

"But, in a country of 150 million, a team of 15 student writers and 15 volunteer youth editors will need a lot more time to make their voices heard. Instead, the greatest achievement was what the children learnt about the complexity of news and the art of telling a story. In other words, it has increased their media literacy."

Carter emphasises the need for time to forge learning with impact, just like these youngsters needed time to gain skills and awareness. Personally, that is a comforting reminder.
